Finnish-style Boiled New Potatoes With Dill

How Many? 

Serves 4

What Do We Need?

1 1/2 pounds washed small potatoes (fingerling or other good boiling potato)
Dill stems from 1/2 bunch
Dill fronds from 1/2 bunch
Coarse kosher/sea salt
1/2 stick unsalted butter

How Do We Make It?

  1. In a large saucepan, place potatoes and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Add a generous amount of salt and dill stems and bring to a boil, partly covered, over medium heat. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook until potatoes are fork-tender, 15-20 minutes (this will depend on the size of the potatoes).

  2. While potatoes are cooking, mince dill fronds and melt butter.

  3. Drain potatoes and discard dill. Place uncovered on heat for 5-10 seconds, shaking pan carefully to let the potatoes dry completely. Crush potatoes with a potato crusher, and mix in melted butter and dill. Season with additional salt.

  4. Serve immediately or cover and keep warm until serving.
