Midsummer would not be Midsummer without strawberries, and this is a simple Swedish recipe to make, to celebrate Midsummer, wherever you may be! In Scandinavia, the summer solstice is a magical time. The lavender twilight lasts until 11 p.m. and the day breaks again at about 2 a.m.; above the Arctic Circle, the sun doesn't sink below the horizon for weeks. This year, 2007, Midsummer Eve, the beginning of the three day official holiday, falls on June 25. Throughout Scandinavia, families and friends gather to decorate the maypole with birch leaves and wildflowers, make flower crowns for women and girls, dance around the maypole, sing summer songs and feast on pickled herring, new potatoes, and aquavit. In addition, many families have their own special foods that they traditionally serve as the Midsummer meal. These are usually dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and easily served outdoors.
