Meanwhile, cut the potato slices in half. Add the potatoes and stock. Lock the lid in place and over high heat bring to high pressure. A djust heat to maintain high pressure and cook for 5 minutes.

Let the pressure drop naturally or use a quick release method. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow any excess steam to escape.

Pour the purée back into the pot. Stir in the dill (if desired) and add salt and pepper to taste. Reheat thoroughly and serve.

Variation:

For a creamier, more elegant version of this rustic country dish, purée the entire mixture, but don't overprocess or the potatoes will become gummy.
