Nordic Dip / Nordisk Dipp

A flashback from the seventies found on “European Favourites” published by Collins in 1973
Nordic Dip / Nordisk Dipp

This may very well be a Nordic kind of dip from the early seventies. Paprika was high fashion among the cooking savoir faire back then and you risked getting celery in dishes where they far from belonged. Probably because some local health guru had sworn to its many benefits.

I can even remember a tv ad proclaiming celery’s magnificence as snacks. With this dip you could actually end up dipping pieces of celery in a dip containing celery. I’ve said it before, those were hard times back then.

To make it even worse, the horrid disco music  was lurking in the near future. A few years later you could actually risk sitting somewhere overdosing on celery listening to that horrible music. – Ted

Sometimes in the early seventies the dip craze reached my humble neck of the woods. There was nothing the dips could not contain and likewise there was not a thing we couldn’t dip in them. Luckily it stabilized up through the decade till both dips and the stuff we dipped in them seamed more reasonable – Ted 😉

The picnic season is right around the corner although we had a short spell of snow only about two weeks ago here in Oslo (quite uncommon for late April I must say).

Ready made dips in suitable containers and any kind of vegetables, fruit, shellfish, cold meat what ever cut into diping friendly pieces and a great variety of salt snacks like biscuits or chips are ideal for a picnic along with coffee, tea or cold drinks – Ted
