Traditional Swedish Recipes

Swedish food tends to be influenced by the seasons with the spicing, and cooking, often reflecting the storage needs of the peasant communitieis of old, as in the case of pickled  herring, freshly salted or smoked meat, or dairy products that have been curdled, boiled or left to mature. 

The following recipes are a taste of what you might enjoy when you visit Sweden - or why not try them at home!

Snaps (Aquavit)

Traditionally served in a small long-stemmed "snaps glass" and may be spiced in an endless variety of flavours.  Aquavit is among the  usual accompaniments during late summer parties, like Crayfish Parties, and the Swedes often sing traditional drinking songs with their snaps, one of the most popular is called "Helan g å r" (to hear a rendition, click on the link under Swedish Songs).


Spiced red wine, simmered (or "mulled").  In Sweden, Glogg is almost always consumed at Christmas, and served in a special mug with a handle.  Guaranteed to warm from the inside!
