The Seven Sorts (and more)


In Norway its an old tradition that every household make SEVEN different christmas cakes and SEVEN different Christmas meats that one eats throughout the holidays. We did have some different meats, Lamb and Pork, but we didn’t do all the seven meats.

For example, pictured above is a traditional Cloudberry Cream, it’s whipped cream, with the lovely orange Cloudberries you find on Norwegian mountain tops.
