Wonderful side dish! I used chicken broth, as that was what I had on hand. I did have to drain the broth at the end, so felt I was loosing all that wonderful dill. I only used 1 T butter and that was plenty for us, lots of freshly ground pepper and salt. Next time, I will add the dill at the end and see if that made a difference. Excellent recipe...kudos on the find!!
