Swedish food and their drinks

Seems I got a wrong turn in the thread "If your pet was a person...", and would like to continue it here!

A lot of swedish food is best enjoyed with an icecold brew, like the famous Janzon's temptation. My mom used to serve a light Resling with it though, whereas I would rather have a distinctive one, for instance Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Anyway something with powerful taste. Because of the onions in this dish it's actually a very wine-friendly meal!

The meatballs are a perfect beer meal, has to be a bitter beer, though, to accompany the sweetness of the lingonberry jam that is mandatory! The side order, or what you call it, is always plain cooked potatoes and a rich brown cream sauce.

This post is also valid as a coupon, should you show up at my door! Drunk

Asking an expert- what is the traditional non alcoholic beverage with a Julbord?

a.) Julzider
b.) Julmust
c.) Julöl

Could win a trip to Paris!

I think you're right - the trick is in the anchovies. The anchovies here are those little Italian ones.

Ikea doesn't stock foods in the antipodes. Although there are a squillion backpacking Swedes (approx.!) here every year, there are very few resident ones- so things Swedish are hard to come by.

One of the local supermarkets used to have some things from Scandinavian countries- not sure why. Occasionally I can buy some of that smoke salmon paste thingy, that comes in a pink tube, which I love. There's another sort in a green tube, contains fennel, I think, but yeccch!

Ul, that's gotta be julmust. I spent last Christmas in Sweden. However, my favorite Swedish Christmas dring is gloegg with raisins and almonds. And I will have that tonight! Very Happy Just bought a bottle at IKEA...

Margo, yes - you got to have these anchovies. I love Kalle's caviar paste that comes in tubes. You can use that for Janson's temptation also - but it's not quite as good as with anchovies.

And it should be something Californian, or, also good, a Cabernet sauvignon from Chile or South Africa!

Hey, Walter, from where do you know this beautiful swedish Christmas carrol(sp?), problem is, I can't sing it.... not because it's too high, I can't sing!!!

At least here in Germany, hebba. (And since they are selling the identical stuff worldwide, I consider, you get it elsewhere, too.)
