      I back off on the sweetening here, both the sugar and molasses. This also works with sourdough instead of yeast.

Publishers Text

This book includes complete menus for celebrations of all sizes and seasons, featuring traditional and contemporary recipes from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. In these lands of the midnight sun, the short days of winter are cheered with slow-cooked comfort foods and the long summer days are celebrated with light, fresh fare. This book carries on the Scandinavian tradition with a bounty of appetizers, drinks, smorgasbord, meats, fish soups, vegetables, desserts and baked goods. From Finland comes a Karelian country buffet featuring rye-crusted pasteries and a three-meat ragout. In a traditional Swedish menu, pancakes complement pea soup and rye bread. A Norwegian feast of dill-stuffed whole salmon is finished off with kransekake, a ring cake of ground almonds. Tiny shrimp, beef tartare and a poor man's beef tartare of capers, horseradish and onion are among the 12 varieties of Danish open-faced sandwiches that come together in a creative smorrebrod.
