Boiled Potatoes with Dill


Small New Potatoes

  • If using small new potatoes, scrub them clean and drop them into boiling salted water together with sprigs of fresh dill.
  • Cook, covered, over moderate heat till tender or about 15 minutes. Test with a toothpick.
  • Drain off the water and let the steam disappear. Serve at once.

To cook the larger (winter) potatoes

  • Select potatoes of the same size and scrub them clean. If desired, peel the potatoes before putting them in the pot.
  • Add water to cover and 2 tablespoons of salt for each pound of potatoes.
  • Bring to a boil, cover and turn down the heat. Let simmer till tender for about 20 minutes.
  • Drain well and let the steam disappear. Serve at once.
