Place the potatoes in a large pot of salted water that covers the potatoes by at least 2 inches (5 cm). Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the potatoes until tender at the center when pierced with a knife, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and transfer to a bowl. Melt the butter and toss the potatoes with it, seasoning well with salt and pepper.
