To all you happy folk enjoying Christmas Day today I’d like to take the chance to share with you what we here in Sweden eat on Christmas Eve.
As I mentioned yesterday, in Sweden, and much of the Northland, Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Eve. In Sweden that means tons of good food.
If you find yourself in North America, and unable to enjoy this smorgasbord don’t fret!
Side bar: Smorgasbord is one of the few English words deriving directly from Swedish.
Head over to your nearest IKEA in the coming days, and you too can enjoy all this goodness. Though there’s no guarantee it will be as tasty as the homemade food here in Sweden. Actually it’s highly unlikely, but you’ll get the Swedish experience at least!
Dessert may vary, but yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas cake. It tasted like peppermint! As per the Swedish usual, dessert is always accompanied by strong coffee.
There was of course the classic ris a la malta. Enjoyed with lingon berries and saftsås.
Merry Christmas from my home to yours.
