5. Pickled herring on knackebröd good. Lutefisk BAD!!
Lots of good Suomilainen baked goodies. They use lots of cardamom. My mother was a great baker. She made all sorts of traditional breads and stuff like that. Before she died my older sister helped put together a family cookbook. Everybody contributed but I knew my sister's ultimate goal, to preserve my mother's expertease, handed down from my grandmother.
There are some phenomenal and authentic Finnish recipes in that book. Regretfully it was self published by my sister at great cost so it's not available except those in the family who have a copy.
I treasure mine in spite of being a hopelessly lousy cook. But it's still part of my culture, my heritage. You can have the lutefisk, though. (My father's Norwegian heritage.) The stuff is inedible.
