Peel potatoes if spotted, otherwise you can leave the skin on (such great vitamin c in the skin if it's organic!) and chop up the potatoes in large cube sides. Place potatoes in a medium size pot and fill with water. Turn on stove to high and let the potatoes boil for 20 minutes or until you can put a fork through and they are soft/easy to break.
Pour the potatoes in a colander and let sit for few minutes in the sink to drain. Put the potatoes in a medium size bowl and add the butter. Mix potatoes with a fork and add half and half and continue mixing until desired consistency. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. You can add garlic powder or fresh parsley if you'd like!
