I was told that all Norwegians put ketchup on their food. Foods like pizza, eggs, pork chops, everything! Is this so?
No Julia – “all” Norwegians don’t put ketchup on their foods (including this one!) but I am sure there are people who do, yes!🙂
I’m an American working on a Norwegian Oil & Gas Platform in the Barents Sea. I love Norwegian food – and am curious about Kumla. I may be mis-spelling this traditional and quite amazing comfort food, (made of flour I believe?) but I have to tell you, I am hooked! Do you happen to have a recipe?
Hi Craig! Great to hear from you and happy you came across my blog! I have written a post about “kumle” before- or, as they call it in my region of Norway “potetball” …read more about it here and get the recipe https://arcticgrub.wordpress.com/2013/01/28/potetball-a-beloved-strange-delicacy/
I hope that answers your question – I no longer post recipes containing animal products, but still am passionate about spreading knowledge about Norwegian traditions (about food, mostly) – so if I can help in any other way, please let me know!🙂
Hi Sunny, just came across Your blog today, as a fellow sunnmoering I will only mention that there is an easier way too make “potetball”, by using the special flour called ballmjoel.
Hi Knut Gunnar !! Happy you came across my blog and thanks for your comment and suggestion! This blog is mainly for non Norwegians (not living in Norway) and I doubt we can find the special flour “ballmjoel” here in the United States… I also focus on classic/old school recipes, although I am always intrigued by how the Norwegian kitchen and cooking is evolving at home! Thanks again and please keep coming back! Vennlig hilsen Sunny🙂
