Introduction

We have camper stoves here in Sweden called Trangia, they are a sturdy spirit burners with pots and pans. This recipe was made to get the most flavors while still being a romantic meal from this little burner. All you need is the best freshest new potatoes you can find, they should be small , then they cook fast and also they are for dipping. You will need a cutting board, a sharp knife a whisk to prepare the meal. For serving all you need is napkins and four forks and 3 good friends. I would serve this with a good bottle of wine. My father always said camping is living in the rough, enjoying the bare flavors of nature and this recipe holds true to that. Perfect evening meal while the sun is setting.

  • Clean the potatoes of dirt, the peel should be on, it is so thin anyway. Pour water and salt into your biggest pan, make sure there is room for the potatoes, light the burner and put the pot on. While that is reaching a boil prepare the herb butter.
  • Chop dill, chives and parsely and mix with the butter, use one of the forks.
  • When the water is boiling, take 3 tablespoon and add to the butter, stir until combine, cover and set aside.
  • Add the potatoes and the dill and let cook until done, make sure it boils but not violently. When the potatoes are done which can take anything from 10 - 20 minutes depending the size of potatoes, drain off the water, cover and set a side.
  • Turn the flame down a bit, take a second and smaller pot, heat up cream while wisking, add the cheese and pepper and keep stirring until it melted. Turn the flame down to low, this is just to keep the cheese melted and warm.
  • Clean the fork you use and ask your 3 friends or family to join you. Start dipping the potatoes in either cheese or herb butter and open a bottle of wine and pass it around.

  • Additional Information

    If you don't have a small gas or spirit burner you can use a small pot and a tunacan open in both ends with fours holes and one tealight inside on a plate.- It is bit tricky but it does work.
