I had vast ambitions for Chocolate Simnel cakes, hot-cross-bun loaves - my buns always end up like small pieces of lead, but if I combine it all into one loaf, it is totally edible! Making eggs with the kids and whatnot.
But then I came across an article on Easter in Scandinavia. With the following list of culinary delights...
- a variety of herrings, including sild (raw herrings in a spicy sauce made from vinegar and onions);
- boiled eggs;
- fish dishes, such as smoked salmon with dill, and lutefisk (rehydrated dried salt cod);
- roast ham;
- Jansson's Temptation (sliced potatoes baked with anchovies and cream),
- and a selection of cheeses - all accompanied by white, rye and crisp bread, as well as beer and schnapps.
But seriously though. I can do smoked salmon, baked ham, baked potato and cheese.
And I'm planning some egg-dying with the kids!
