It sometimes seems that everything in Swedish cooking is flavored with dill. While that's not quite true, here is another wonderful example that uses it. Serve this sauce with boiled veal or lamb, over small boiled potatoes, or with fish.

This sauce would be fantastic on salmon. I tried it on potatoes but I kept thinking fish for some reason! Don't get me wrong - it was great on potatoes too! I made this as listed, using chicken stock. Made for Photo Tag game. Thanks IngridH! :)
