First things first, steam the potatoes. Place the chopped potatoes in a pot with cold water. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat. Steam the potatoes for about 20-25 minutes 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.
