Egg salad is a classic that works just as well as sandwich spread, for the smörgåsbord or with cured meat or smoked salmon. Here it is made with mustard and spring onion for extra taste and it rounded off with a fresh taste of lemon. Try this the next time you invite guests or make it for the lunch box.

A traditional recipe found on norsktradisjonsmat.no
Norwegian Raspberry Cordial / Bringebærsaft

Raspberries have been known and eaten as long as it has lived people in Norway. As far back as from the Stone Age, large amounts of raspberry seeds have been found in one place and it is probably waste after making something resembling modern cordials.

This recipe is from the book “Drikke fra Østfold” (Drink from Østfold), published by Østfold Associated Country Women in 2007.

Cordials were very popular in Norway when I was a kid back in the fifties and early sixties. At home both black currant, red currant, raspberry and bluberry cordials were made each autumn – Ted

Norwegian Sweet Soup / Søtsuppe

An old-fashioned dessert found on thespruce.com
Norwegian Sweet Soup / Søtsuppe

Dried fruit soup, known as “Søtsuppe” or “Sweet Soup” is a Norwegian favorite. Here’s a basic recipe – feel free to experiment with the types of fruit according to your taste and the ingredients you have on hand. The trick is to simmer the soup slowly to retain the shapes of the fruit. If most of the liquid were cooked out, this would be known as a fruit compote.

Cookie floaters lend an extra sparkle to Norwegian fruit soups and compotes.

Swedish Bellman’s Mould / Bellmanslåde

Bellman’s mould has been said to be a variation on Jansson’s Temptation. But really it’s just the opposite!

This mould was one of Stallmästargården’s specialties in the 1920s and 1930s, and was very popular both as snack and as a full luncheon. Jansson’s temptation eventually developed as a variation on the Bellman Mould.

Norwegian Rhubarb Cordial / Rabarbrasaft

An old fashioned cordial recipe found on jaerbladet.no
Norwegian Rhubarb Cordial / Rabarbrasaft

You will get a wonderful color on the cordial if you let the peel stay on the rhubarb and if you want, you can also add a handfull of raspberries or strawberries for color and taste.

This is raw cordial so it has shorter shelf life than boiled cordials, but it’s the taste of season and summer so enjoy the moment. Bring a bottle at the summer party, it will guaranteed be a popular gift.
