  1. Combine the potatoes, peas, and corn in a pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes but not completely drown them.
  2. Simmer, covered, for about 15–20 minutes until fork-tender but not mushy. The water should be nearly empty by the time the potatoes are fork-tender, but if there is still a significant amount, it is advisable to drain it and leave only a small amount left so that the potatoes will be simple to mash.
  3. Mash everything together, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Serve.
