The recipe was passed down from some of my Ukrainian relatives. I love using the fresh dill from my garden to make the sauce.—Dannealle Misson, Pembina, North Dakota


  • 12 small red potatoes (1 pound)
  • 2 fresh dill sprigs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Place potatoes and dill sprigs in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Transfer potatoes to a serving bowl; keep warm.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add cream and reserved cooking liquid. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the snipped dill, lemon juice and salt; pour over potatoes and toss to coat.
