What is it?
It's what's for breakfast (and sometimes lunch) in Sweden. It's similar to runny yoghurt only it uses different bacteria cultures. It tastes slightly tarter and more healthy than yoghurt. You can buy it in the store or else make your own by pouring regular milk in a bowl of leftover filmjölk, covering it with a cloth, and letting it sit overnight.
What do I do with it?
You pour it in a ceral bowl and then put stuff in it like any combination of jams and cereals. I prefer muesli.
Why should I care?
It's addicting, plus it's good for the intestinal tract so it's a great way to start the day.
What else do I eat for breakfast in Sweden?
Depends where you are, but normally you eat any combination of buttered bread (crispy Wasa knäckebröd or soft brown bread), cheese, jam, cucumbers, liver paté, sliced meats, caviar, and hard boiled eggs.
Why are you writing about breakfast foods all of a sudden?
I am trying to make this site interesting to people to want to know more about Swedish life and ahem, culture.
