Should you peel the potatoes before boiling? This is entirely a preference step and depends on the potatoes being used. A thin fleshed potato will do fine with the skin left on, whereas a rustic style, thick skinned potato will benefit from being peeled before boiling.
What can you do when you have too much fresh dill? Make this recipe for a large crowd. Use any available potatoe options and increase the ingredients volume as needed. The dill garlic sauce is where all the flavours dance.
Is there a gluten free sunflower oil? Yes, there is! A great gluten free sunflower oil for cooking is Maison Orphee Organic Sunflower Oil. Every week, Maison Orphee presses Canadian-grown sunflower seeds using a small screw press. Fresh and mild, this oil works well as a finishing touch or in baking.
Originally posted Ukrainian Dill Potatoes recipe used 1/4 cup of sunflower oil instead of butter. Adjustments were made to use butter for ingredients availability.
