Black Currant Liqueur / Solbærlikør

A liqueur recipe found on norsktradisjonsmat.no
Black Currant Liqueur / Solbærlikør

Black currant will make a delicious liqueur. Liquor came to Norway in the 16th century. At that time, the pharmacies were responsible for the sale, under the label “medicine for everything”. Initially it was imported, but soon Norwegians learned to produce it by fermentation of grain or potatoes and distillation. Making liqueurs for Christmas is a long tradition in many Norwegian families, including my own.

This recipe is taken from the book “Drink from Østfold”, published by Østfold Associated Country Women in 2007. If you start now, the liqueur will be finished well in advance of Christmas.

Traditional Norwegian Melkeringe / Tradisjonell Melkeringe

A recipe for a traditional Norwegian dessert recipe
found on
New Scandinavian Cooking
Traditional Norwegian Melkeringe / Tradisjonell Melkeringe

Andreas Viestad writes:  Melkeringe is a sour milk product, which is similar in consistency to pannacotta. In the olden days, melkeringe was made immediately after the cows had been milked, using strained milk which had not had time to cool down. It was poured into a milk ring which was a round, low, wooden container.

It was then set aside to sour at room temperature for approx. 24 hours. At the end of the souring process, the container was chilled at a lower temperature until it was served. It is now more common to make melkeringe using the method I have employed here, i.e. by adding a bacterial culture to the milk.

This is a delicious dessert cake from the time when farmers made their own sour cream. There is no need for the apples in the cake, but they add a fresh fruity flavor you may have to replace by serving jams with the cake if left out.
