Today is the last day of the Swedish Christmas. On Knut’s Day we take down all the Christmas decorations and throw out the tree. We throw a little party where we eat any remaining Christmas biscuits and candy, and dance around the tree singing traditional songs.
I’m super busy writing the last pages on my examination essay, it’s due today. Therefore all I have time for is making crepes. In Sweden we typically serve them with lingonberry jam.
Gluten-free Swedish crepes, makes more than 15
400-500 mL oat flour, finely ground
400 mL milk
50-75 grams butter
After several days with Christmas dinners and leftovers, all I long for is something light and fresh. Like fruit salad. Super simple, and everyone likes it. Just take whatever fresh and dried fruit you have left in your fruit basket. Serve as it is or with some vanilla ice cream.
Fruit salad, makes 6-8 servings
Lemon juice (from half a lemon or a bottle)
Half a box of physalis
Dried cranberries and/or finely chopped figs and/or dades
Dried pumpkin seeds and/or sunflower seeds
