Traditional Norwegian Redcurrant Jelly / Tradisjonell Ripsgelé

A quick and simple jelly recipe found on dinmat.noTraditional Norwegian Redcurrant Jelly / Tradisjonell Ripsgelé

Conserving redcurrant has been known from the 17th century and in the 18th century the redcurrant bushes were widely spread in Norway. In Norwegian gardens there are very many bushes still, but there is little commercial production. Redcurrant contains pectin which makes it very suitable for jelly and jam. One portion of this recipe makes one jar of finished jelly.

We had both redcurrant, blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes in the garden where I grew up so this is stuff I grew up on – Ted

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.
