    There's more in the arsenal.

    Saltsild = Salted herring with cold potates.
    Smalahovud = Mutton heads specially prepared (apparently the eye is particularly delicious) Never tasted it! Its the ultimate WMD (p)!

    And as always hand-knitted sweathers as a surefire rallying point!

    Steve.
    On a serious note, the light is very, very special here both in the winter and spring, we have long evenings and long mornings with a special silvery quality to the light.

    If you master that and are able to catch it on film and express it, youre certainly a Master of Photography.

    Ron the Swedes, our great neighbor to the east have something even worse :

    Surströmming! That is tinned, salted herring from the Baltic sea, after a special process. Apparently slight decomposition takes place inside the tins, unlike anything else in the world.

    When a can is opened, it better be in the open, the FUMES will empy a room the size of a football field. Sometimes the damn things are said to explode and spray those close by.

    The Swedes love this stuff, which goes to show they are true descendants of the vikings!

    OK, Terrific !

    Thanks for the update Erik.
    Many years ago I read an article in National Geographic
    about Rotten Shark, it's allowed to rot for a few months.
    And then consumed at the peak of Yumminess !

    Have you ever sampled any of these delicacies ?

    Lutefisk of course and a LOT of salted herring in my younger days, we used to have a poor mans soup back with my parents with salted herring that was actually very GOOD!
    Salte herring was poor peoples food, back in the day, looooong before oil, nowadays the youngsters eat pizza and mexican, they know NOTHING!

    Surströmming is a WMD in my opinion, and I would never eat a muttons head with the eye steering at me! Other parts of mutton is delicious though and the autumn when the lambs are gathered from mountian ranges is still a season of festivity, when we put the knife to those lambs....

    I will have to broaden my gastronomical horizons, the maggoty cheese
    from Spain might be a good way to get started.

    OOOoooppss.

    We are getting off topic.

    Maybe we need to start an "International Delicacies" Thread !
