Swedish Kroppkakor

40 mins (prep 30, cooking 10)
6 ingredients
4 servings
Kroppkakor is eaten all over Sweden and is really old-fashioned cooking. The recipe is varying in different parts of Sweden. It is made with only raw potatoes or raw and boiled or just boiled as in this recipe. The allspice is not something that everybody likes, for me it's a must though. If there are any leftovers I love to slice them in halves the next day and fry them in butter--mmm!! A friend of mine from the north of Sweden does just that but he makes a sauce by pouring milk into the frying pan and boiling it with the halved kroppkakor, he does not want any allspice in his and makes them with both raw and cooked potatoes. This is one of the few dishes that I drink milk with. Lingonsylt is a must all over Sweden; I believe it is called cowberry or red whortleberry. I hope you enjoy!!
