Struvor

A very blurry pic of the swedish christmas cookie struvor. We are
celebrating lucia at work this morning. (one day early)

Will you be making Lucia buns for tomorrow morning?

GreggR said...

Me again, sorry.
This is the first that I have seen your blog.
Looks like you have no lutefisk recipes. Is it on your menu for Christmas Eve?

Anne said...

Gregg - sorry, I'm pretty much done with my Lucia buns for this year :) I have a recipe for traditional ones though, check the right-hand menus! As for lutfisk, nope, it's not something I eat, nor does anyone I know! :) As for a recipe for it, everyone here buys it ready-made... I think it's a fairly dying tradition, really. :)

Fi fan vad vidrigt! Har aldrig kunnat äta struvor igen sedan jag fick det hos mormor när jag var liten och kalvade som satan sedan på natten (jag tål varken överdriven flottighet eller vispad grädde). Mår illa bara jag ser en struva. :D

On lutfisk: my dad eats it around the year, if he can get ahold of it. ;D He's probably the largest Swedish consumer. O.o

Anne said...

Gabriela, I'll try to make these and post within the next few days. I made Per run out and buy me the special tool (rosette iron) yesterday :)

I just love struvor.

Now I am curious of what your musts are at the x-mas table. Anser only if you think it is fun. I have challenged you on my blog.

They look like Italian ferratelle! We have the iron at home too. I don't remember the ingredients, but they're anise-flavoured (we use Sambuca liqueur) and I guess they're waffle-like. I can't see well from the picture, do struvor have holes in them?

Anne said...

Kinna, I'll try to do that! :)

Valeria - they do indeed have holes. Struvor are generally unflavored, but I think I'll try flavoring the sugar that they're rolled in with cardamom and cinnamon.

Valeria said...

Ok, they're quite different then :) I'll look forward to the recipe!
These are ferratelle, anyway:

they look like gaufres but they're not fried, and they're more crunchy. I don't know if they're famous in Sweden, few people know about them even here.

I wonder how those cookies are shaped. Looks so intricate.
