Grilled Smoked Pork with Sauce / Grillkasseler med Sås

A quick dinner recipe found in “God Mat på en Halv
Timme” (Nice Food in Half an Hour) published by 
Alt om Mat in 1974Grilled Smoked Pork with Sauce / Grillkasseler med Sås

Smoked pork is delicious and often used summer food in Scandinavia.
This little recipe has been simplified, but it is undoubtedly an advantage
if the meat can stay a while in the “marinade” to pick up flavour.

Veal Stew with Oranges / Kalvegryde med Appelsin

It’s not very often you see Scandinavian dinner recipes using fruit to the to the extent that Mona Giersing is using here. It almost gives this veal stew a touch of the Caribbean and that certainly works for me – Ted

Gädda i Grädde / Creamy Pike

A simple fish dish found in “God Mat På en Halv Timme”
(Nice Food in Half an Hour) published by Allt Om Mat in 1974

Gdda-I-Grdda_thumb2_thumb

For this dish the golden rule is: The simpler the better. But then for a Swede the combination of pike, cream and tomato puree is unusually obvious.

Pike is copious both in Norwegian, Finish and Swedish lakes and it is a very popular fish both in Sweden and Finland. It is hardly ever eaten here in Norway though. Strange really, though it is rather ugly to look at it is absolutely delicious with its firm white meat – Ted

Ill_01_thumb[36]Karin was the Swedish artist Carl Larsson’s wife. The recipe is assigned to this cookbook by Karin’s and Carls’s grandson. Today, the syrup cookies are baked every Christmas in Larsson’s home Sundborn in Dalarna. The cakes should be quite tough. You keep the toughness by storing the cakes in plastic bags together with a piece of bread.

Potash (potassium carbonate) can be purchased at the pharmacies, but can be substituted with baking powder  or baking soda.

Swedish Beet Soup / Rödbetssoppa

It is so nice when the first beets are harvested and you can eat them lightly cooked with a dollop of butter. When they have lost their news value it’s time for soup. This recipe is traditional, but if you want to add an extra spark, serve it with freshly grated horseradish, this lovely gastronomic booster.

Breaded Chicken Schnitzels / Paneret kyllingeschnitzel

A dinner recipe found in “Bogen om Kyllinger”
(The Book About Chicken) published by Lademann in 1972

Breaded Chicken Schnitzels / Paneret kyllingeschnitzel

A schnitzel is meat, usually thinned by pounding with a meat tenderizer, that is fried in some kind of oil or fat. The term is most commonly used to refer to meats coated with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, and then fried, but some variants such as Walliser Schnitzel are not breaded. Originating in Austria, the breaded schnitzel is popular in many countries and made using either veal, mutton, chicken, beef, turkey, reindeer, or pork. It is very similar to the French dish escalope.
