A good basic potato recipe, I liked how creamy they were, though for me the juniper didn't come through that strongly. Because of how hot it was today, I changed up the cooking method, cooking the peeled and sliced potatoes till tender firm in the microwave (I added extra juniper and salt to the water), then putting them together with everything in a covered cake pan and cooking them the rest of the way in my barbeque while grilling a pork. I used the upper rack on the no flame side and they cooked perfectly. Made for ZWT 9 by another one of the Appliance Killers.
