Checking the potatoes for doneness is easy: pierce one with a knife. If the knife slides in easily, the potatoes are done.

Finely chop the dill sprigs and put aside.

As soon as the potatoes are done, pour the water out.

Do not transfer the potatoes from the pot they cooked in!

Add the butter and the dill.

Cover. Holding the lid tightly, give the pot contents a good shake.

Keep the potatoes covered for a couple of minutes to let the dill aroma permeate the potatoes and allow the butter to melt.

Stir carefully and serve on individual plates.
