Teres says that we never go out for a meal together, so the other evening I took her to one of my favourite places………
Its a nice quiet spot with a lovely view across the river and a great area to watch birds and animals (we were fortunate enough to watch a Peregrine Falcon chasing Common Sandpipers over the river). I also saw my first skogslämmel, Forest Lemming (Myopus schisticolor).
I made a sausage and vegetable stew, with cheese dumplings and coffee after.
The dumplings I make by mixing flour, salt, baking powder and honey. I then cut lumps of cheese and wrap the dough around the cheese and cook in the stew.
And now specially for Cristy Anspachm…
Here is a typical example of a sausage here in Sweden
We cut a piece from the sausage and remove the wrapping and set on a stick and grill over the fire
This is what it looks like when cooked
To cook the coffee I first boil the water in a coffee pot
I then pour in coffee grounds until they form a peak above the water. The pot goes back over the fire and simmers for a couple of minutes. I then pour out a cup of coffee and pour back into the pot. This makes the coffee grounds settle to the bottom of the pot and after a couple of minutes you can pour out the coffee.
