I have bought my herrings to make the great salad we used to make. I haven't found the cookbook yet though so can't even remember what is in it except that we liked it. Herrings seem available everywhere so are a good thing to menu plan with here. We have trouble with availability sometimes.

Any other herring salads?

peel and slice thinly a cucumber, lightly salt it, and let it sit for awhile, drain liquid and pat dry. add sour cream, black pepper and dill (fresh or dried) to taste, mix gently. A favorite taste of Sweden on dark bread with smoked fish or salted meat. (find some canned herring or salted dried ham for example)

very simple ... and so Scandahoovian

don't rag on lye processed foods or you can give up pretzels, corn flakes, hominy, grits, and half a dozen other common food items of the grains and cerial category. And I'm sure there are lots more.

I love to watch Rick Steves a World traveler on PBS. He was in one of the Scandinavian countries. His guide or hostess took him to a sidewalk stand where they were dressing raw fish, small, about four to six inches long. People were devouring them raw, with great relish. They simply tipped back their heads and swallowed them whole, as we Americans did during the goldfish era. I can't remember what they were, but UGH. I didn't do goldfish either.

I visualize all those little parasites in the raw fish and it is a big turn-off. Same with sashimi. I like the veggie ones tho.

Krubb Kaker (don't know if I have the spelling right) was one of my favorites, growing up. It is a sort of meat and potato dumpling. Peel and grate potatoes using the jagged side of the grater that turns things to mush (and takes the tops of your knuckles off - ouch!). By the time you are done grating several potatoes, the juice will have turned a brownish color. That's okay, don't drain it off. Add enough flour to make a dough that you can handle without it being too sticky. Squeeze off small balls of dough, flatten, and wrap around a piece of meat - we used to use a half of a breakfast-style pork link sausage (this works well if the sausage is still a bit frozen, too) - and seal it shut. Put dumplings in a big pot of water and boil a few minutes until done. If you have extra sausage, just throw them in the pot, as well. When sausage is cooked through, the dumplings are done. Scoop them out of the water with a slotted spoon and serve with butter and cream. Slice dumpling open, put a dab of butter inside and pour cream over. Delicious!

I also have a delicious Swedish pancake recipe and what about the traditional smorjabord?

Norwegian Salmon Soup - a chowder to us.

Most Excellent Norwegian Salmon Soup (Laksesuppe)

Recipe is from a first generation Norwegian-American, found at the International Festival in Columbus, Ohio, November 3 & 4, 2007. I had a cup both...

Here is one I posted - really good but all the more sophisticated cooks may find it old hat - I don't know. Made it for family, loved it so it's probably time to make it again.

I was trying to remember foods from my childhood. I well remember lutefisk. I abhorred it. One thing I enjoyed was osta kaka a Swedish dessert. The kind we ate was sort of a custard/cheesecake. Sometimes it's topped with lignonberries.

I can't recommend a recipe. I've never made it. I just googled "osta kaka" and got a couple of hits. Hope this helps.
