      Used a variety of potatoes: red, Yukon and blue. The only minor quibble I have is we didn't enjoy biting into the juniper berries. Next time I would grind them finer although that would make the presentation less dramatic. Delicious side dish and worthy of a special spot on your Holiday dining table! The roasted garlic was a perfect addition. Thank you! Served with Wienerschnitzel!and Healthier Cole Slaw.

      I used peeled red potatoes that I cut up. The directions and the flavor were both perfect! Made for ZWT 6.
