Christmas soon and that means I have to pickle my own herring. I don´t have to…but I need to. Want to. Love to. I try to make a new one every year and this year I´m prepping well in advance. But what ….? I love the clear herrings and the one I like best is with onions. Lot´s of it and lots´of crushed allspice … yes quite classic and nothing fussy.
My grandfather Oskar was a nice old man who sometimes took a drink too much, but had a heart of gold. He smoked a pipe , traveled with me around the world on his globe and ate very burnt bacon.
Kååååldolmar ….(cabbage rolls) that´s what Pippi Longstocking said with longing in her voice when she was on the run and stood outside the window of a restaurant, penniless and hungry. “Kåldolmar” is stuffed cabbage rolls and an old traditional Swedish dish…which probably came from Greece of Turkey a long time ago.
