Garlicky Mashed Potatoes

2 lbs. Idaho potatoes, scrubbed
5 large unpeeled garlic cloves
1 c. skim milk
1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
3 tsp. chives

Place the potatoes and the garlic cloves in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water.  Bring to a boil over high heat, and reduce the heat to medium.  Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes.  Drain the potatoes and garlic, reserving ½ cup of the cooking liquid. 

Peel the potatoes and squeeze the garlic cloves from their skins.  Mash the potatoes and garlic with a potato masher or electric mixer.  Beat in the milk, reserved potato water and olive oil.  Season with pepper and sprinkle with chives.
