This photo with the title as above was among the photos in a post called “These 60 Rare Photos Will Destroy Everything You Knew About The Past” once posted on Distractify. But honestly, I know we are a small country with merely 5 million citizens and even fewer back when the photo was taken, still I think you would need more than 12 people to call an event a national celebration.
On the other hand, a song from just after WWII called “Når det kommer en båt med bananer” (When a boat with bananas arrives) is still played on the radio from time to time, so yes, we do love bananas in Norway – Ted 😉
A classic seventies dessert found in “Desserter” (Desserts) published by Hjemmets kokebokklubb in 1979
If you’ve never tasted fried bananas you’ve missed out on a rather delicious dessert. Chopped almonds, lemon juice and honey makes this quickly prepared and just as quickly fried dessert a real treat – Ted
Sweet potato gives an added dimension here – extra moistness, extra sweetness and a touch of earthiness too. You could use steamed mashed pumpkin if you prefer, substitute wholemeal flour for plain white or, if peanuts don’t float your boat, scatter any other nut over the top.
A contemporary Christmas desert recipe found on nrk.no/mat/
Starting off with a contemporary Christmas dessert recipe. Very nice and so simply to make that it just can’t go wrong. A lot of the other food we make for Christmas are both time consuming and complicated so an easy and delicious desert recipe might come in handy.
But don’t you worry, more traditional deserts, both from Norway and from across the North Sea will turn up on my Christmas Special later on.
