Add the potatoes, salt, pepper, stock, nutmeg and close the lid. Set the valve to seal and cook for 10 minutes on high pressure.

Blend the soup (half or all of it). Add the half and half and cornstarch mixture. Set the Instant pot to Sauté  and cook for 1-2 minutes, keeping an eye on the soup, so it can thicken.
