Saturday 18th April 2015 - The Letter P.
P is for POTATIS = (Swedish for 'potatoes')
We eat a lot of potatoes in Sweden. It is hard to think what it must have been like here before this root-fruit was introduced. (We ate more cabbage.) But potatoes were grown in Sweden even before Jonas Alströmer (1685-1761) was born. Alströmer is often attributed to being the one who first introduced the potato to Sweden.

And of course, Janssons frestelse (Jansson's Temptation) is a potato and anchovy-casserole that is not to be missed:
