Try this Swedish style version of boiled potatoes featuring fresh dill and butter… the perfect accompaniment to any meal – or a great snack on their own! Recipe by John Duxbury on Ingredients 900 g potatoes 1 sprig of fresh mint (or dill stalks to be really Swedish) ½ tsp salt 30 g (¼ stick) butter 2 tbsp finely chopped dill salt (ideally rock salt) and freshly ground black pepper Method 1. Wash the potatoes 2. Place the larger potatoes over the base of a saucepan and pop the smaller ones on top. Pour in enough boiling water to not quite cover them, add some salt and the sprig of mint. 3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer gently for between 10 and 20 minutes. The cooking time depends on the variety and size. Test them with a skewer as they must be tender but still firm—overcooking really does spoil them. 4. Drain the potatoes and add the butter, chopped dill and a little pepper to the pan and then return the potatoes to the pan. Put the lid back on the pan and swirl the pan around to get each potato thoroughly coated. 5. Remove the lid, savour the delicious aroma and then sprinkle with a little rock salt before serving dishing them! #todatoes #recipe #wapotatoes #dillpotatoes #foodlove #foodshare #eatingclean #foodporn #potatoes #potatorecipe #potatolove #buywesteatbest #eatlocal #justanotherdayinwa #supportfarmers #westisbest #supportlocal #freshisbest

  • 1 pound of fingerling potatoes, or any type of small or baby potato
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 3 tablespoons of dill
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of pepper


  1. Start by rinsing the potatoes and putting them into a wide pot or pan so they fit in one single layer.
  2. Pour in the broth and put in the butter into the pot or pan and cover it.
  3. Cook on medium-high heat for 11-13 minutes and then uncover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed and the potatoes are soft about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Smash the potatoes just slightly so when you season them they can get seasoned on the inside slightly. Season with the salt and pepper.
  5. Cook for 2-3 more minutes so the potatoes get a little crispy, and then sprinkle on the dill.
