Turn The Heat Down To Medium-Low, And Simmer For 10 To 12 Minutes, Or Until Just Tender Enough For A Fork Or A Sharp Knife To Pierce Them Easily. (They Should Not Be Falling Apart.)
  • 2. During The Last Few Minutes Of Simmering, Rinse A Big Handful Of Parsley Under Running Water. Squeeze It Tightly Over The Sink To Press Out Most Of The Water, Then Roll It In Paper Towels To Dry It Further. Transfer The Parsley To A Cutting Board And Mince With A Sharp Knife. Measure Out 1/3 Cup, And Set This Aside.
  • 3. Place The Colander Back In The Sink, And Drain The Potatoes Well. Carefully (So As Not To Burn Yourself) Pat The Cooking Pot Dry With Paper Towels And Immediately Return The Potatoes To The Pot. Throw In The Butter Or Drizzle In The Olive Oil (Or Use Some Of Both) And Toss, Sprinkling In The ¾ Teaspoon Salt As You Go. Toss In The Parsley, Stir, Transfer To A Bowl, And Serve Right Away.
