Cut potatoes into chunks. In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes and garlic until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and return to pot; heat over low heat, shaking pan occasionally, until dry, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper; using potato masher, mash until smooth.
