Norwegian wort beer is a non-alcoholic drink made from water, malt and hops and added carbonic acid. In principle, wort beer is beer that has not been through fermentation. In Norway, wort beer is typically dark, roughly looking like Guinness. Wort beer is brewed by Ringnes, Hansa and Aass today.

Wort beer contains some minerals, malt sugar and some b vitamins. Maltese sugar provides fast energy, and the beer is therefore good as a sport drink. The beer is dark, sweet and with a little taste of hops.

Buckwheat Cakes / Bokhvetepannekaker

A classic Ameican breakfast griddle cake recipe found in
“The Art of Baking Bread” published by
The Northwestern Yeast Co in 1922
Buckwheat Cakes / Bokhvetepannekaker

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) is a plant cultivated for its grain-like seeds and as a cover crop. To distinguish it from a related species, Fagopyrum tataricum, it is also known as common buckwheat, Japanese buckwheat and silverhull buckwheat.

Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, as it is not a grass. Instead, buckwheat is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Because its seeds are eaten and rich in complex carbohydrates, it is referred to as a pseudocereal. The cultivation of buckwheat grain declined sharply in the 20th century with the adoption of nitrogen fertilizer that increased the productivity of other staples.

Book of Recipes” published by Borden’s Condenced Milk Co

Oatmeal Bread / Havrebrød

The people at Borden’s Condensed Milk Co obviously think we are all superbly accomplished bakers as they didn’t bother to mention neither oven temperature nor baking time in the recipe. I can’t say I feel all that sure about my accomplisment in the field of baking so I hope I’ll find help in similar recipes elsewhere on the net.
