New Potatoes in Cream
At our house the first new potatoes are prepared in the traditional Ukrainian way, with cream and dill. There is no way that a person could eat potatoes this way all summer long but they are a treat. Also I have learned to steam potatoes, all potatoes and especially the new potatoes; this method gives the absolute best taste and retains the most nutrients; give it a try you'll be amazed!
2 - 3 lb. new potatoes
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
Salt to taste, approx 1/2 tsp.
1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh dill
1 tbsp. fresh green onion tops, chopped
Wash, scrub and steam the new potatoes until barely tender. In another saucepan, add cream, dill, green onions and salt to taste. Bring to a gentle simmer. Remove potatoes from steamer and add to the cream mixture. Heat cream and potato mixture thoroughly, gently stirring potatoes in cream to coat them evenly. Serve immediately.
