regardless of anything, it would be this. I’ve just had supper so this cake [Prinsesstårta] would be heavenly! It’s a traditional Swedish cake filled with a.o. whipped cream, custard and jam, and covered with green marzipan. I didn’t have any picture of my own, so this is from Wikipedia. This is a homemade version. They’re sold in grocery stores frozen too, but that’s not quite the same as the ones you buy in pastry shops. I’m a huge marzipan lover so that’s the best part.
There are not many food items that I cannot get a hold of or dishes I can’t make myself, but there are a few. Little things, that I never even reflected upon before I moved. They were just there … everyday things.
There’s a certain kind of sausage … «Falukorv». You can’t get that here. It’s a good sausage …nothing more, not sensational or anything 🙂 It’s just the convenience of it! I’d say most people have one in their fridge. When you’re out of ideas what to make for supper … the sausage is always there, and it can be varied infinitely. Usually, it comes in a ring.
There’s one more thing that I miss and I can’t get. It’s called «filmjölk» and is very close to yoghurt. It’s like sour cream but thinner … that’s probably the best explanation I could come up with. It has a rather special taste if you’re not used to it. It’s eaten for breakfast with cereals. Here’s a bowl … it’s sold in the same type of packages as milk, everywhere.
These are the three things I miss from my native Sweden. It’s not something that I think about every day … it just came to mind when I read the topic suggestion in WP: «If you could have anything to eat right now…?»
In another post I’ll write about what I would miss from here, were I ever to go back. Wikipedia is a great tool! 🙂
