peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
heavy whipping cream
kosher salt (more to taste)
Black pepper to taste
First things first, steam the potatoes. Place the chopped potatoes in a pot with 1/2 cup water. (You don't need to cover the entire pot with water, a 1/2 cup goes a long way)
Steam the potatoes for about 20-25 minutes, at medium-high heat, stirring them occasionally, until they are tender enough to mash. Drain and let cool slightly.
Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Mash them with a potato masher, then add heavy whipping cream, butter, salt, dried parsley, and black pepper. Mix until all is well combined.
Taste and adjust salt as needed. Serve and enjoy!
