Method

 
Peel the potatoes and place in pot with salted water. Slowly bring to a very gentle simmer and cook until fork tender.

When the potatoes are almost done, place the milk and butter in a pot on the stove and warm until butter has melted.

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and place in the pot with the milk and butter. Start mashing the potatoes with a potato masher, add more milk if it is too dry.

Spoon some potato into a sieve and with the back of the spoon, work the potatoes through the sieve and repeat until all the potatoes are done. Alternatively you could use a potato masher.

Repeat the process once more. Taste the potatoes and if necessary add more salt. Add a grating of whole nutmeg.
