    Mashed potatoes don't need to be hard to make but they do need to be perfect, or so they say.....whoever they are.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fill a large pot halfway with cold water. Peel the potatoes and cut into 2 inch cubes, adding to the pot as they are cut. Add cold water to cover by 1 inch, if needed. Stir in the 3 tbsp kosher salt.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low and gently simmer until tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain potatoes and transfer to a baking sheet. Let dry 5-10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, heat milk, cream, peppercorns, sprigs and bay leaves in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is very hot but not boiling, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and let mixture infuse for 20 minutes then strain.
    5. 5
      While milk mixture is infusing, pass the potatoes through the smallest disk of a food mill along with the diced butter into a large bowl. The hot cream mixture should be ready by this time so stir into the riced potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      If you need to hold the mashed potatoes, cover with plastic wrap pressed directly against the potatoes surface and set bowl over a large pot of simmering water for up to 2 hours.
