Traditional Norwegian Barley Soup / Grynsodd

A classic Norwegian farmhouse recipe found in
“Gode, Gamle Oppskrifter” (Delicious Old Recipes)
published by Gyldendal in 1991

Traditional Norwegian Barley Soup / Grynsodd

A tempting soup with plenty of rutabaga, carrot, cabbage and potatoes. And with small pieces of meat as “spice”.

If you use vegetable broth instead of beef broth in this soup, it will make first-rate vegetarian food. The combination of whole barley, vegetables and potatoes is perfect. Serve it with bread and you have a full meal.

If you want the soup thicker, more like a stew, you just add a little more barley and more potatoes and vegetables.

18th Century Potatoe Balls / Potetballer fra det 18ende Århundre

A traditional relish/dinner recipe found on recipes,history.org
18th Century Potatoe Balls / Potetballer fra det 18ende Århundre

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this recipe is Mary Randolph’s direction to boil the potatoes with skin on to keep the starch in for frying. In many historic recipes, the technique is not spelled out as one would require in modern recipes. However, 18th century cookbook authors assumed that the reader was already a cook and familiar with a variety of processes.

Norwegian Traditional Velvet Porridge / Fløyelsgrøt

Delicious porridge with long traditions. This recipe is taken from  “Traditionskost fra Ringerike” (Traditional Food from Ringerike), published in 1996.

Here we can read that porridge and gruel were widely used in theold days. Water porridge and milk porridge were most common everyday, while velvet porridge was usually served on Saturday afternoon. An old farmhand from Ådalen once said, “If theres no porridge, I might as well stay here.” He was out working out in the fields and saw no reason to walk up to the farmhouse to eat the evening meal if there was no porridge on the table.

Pan-fried Bread / Pannestekt Brød

Usually, you have to be very thorough when baking bread. However, if you bake it in a frying pan, the bread will be a bit more rustic, but you are finished in half the time and it tastes wonderful. With the sour milk, the bread becomes kind of like a Norwegian pita bread.
