Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Any good cook has a handful of mashed potato recipes in their repertoire. I like Cheddar/Jalapeno mashers, Garlicky Red Bliss Mashers and Bacon Gouda Mashers but my all time favorite is Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes.
 
3 lbs Potatoes, Russet,
1 c. Buttermilk
2 oz. Butter
Salt, Kosher
Pepper, Black, cracked
Method
* Peel potatoes
* Cut each potato into 1/6ths
* Rinse thoroughly
* Steam potatoes for 15 minutes
* Remove from steamer and rinse with cold water
[ cooking note: this removes some of the starch and prevents the potatoes from becoming gummy ]
* Steam for 15 minutes more or til potatoes are tender
* Remove from steamer and place in large mixing bowl
* Take a wire whip and beat potatoes as you add the buttermilk and butter
[ cooking note: Some folks like to use a potato masher or ricer but one of the best chefs I ever trained under only used a heavy duty wire whip ]
* Add salt to taste
* Crack the black pepper over the potatoes as a garnish [ this prevents the pepper from turning the potatoes gray]
