Kuemmelkartoffel (Caraway Potatoes) Recipe

Step 1

Peel the raw potatoes, slice them, and boil in very salty water until tender. Drain the water. Scatter the caraway seed over the potatoes, cover, and on low heat, let dry for 2 to 3 minutes. The potatoes are served in a bowl, and frequently the cook would pour melted butter over them.

SALZKARTOFFELN: As above, but omit the caraway seed.

Step 2

Serves 4.
