    How are your yule celebrations?

    Here, the smell of Lutefisk permeates the air. Luckily it isn't compulsory eating, and tomorrow I'll be roasting them pork ribs, with crispy crust (water running in my mouth as I am writing)..

    So .. What are the traditional food where you are at?

    Turkey with giblet gravy or a ham, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, a family tradition has always been oyster stew.

    We soaked a turkey in spicy brine last night and roasted it today to give to my father. We'll pack slices of meat for him to freeze for sandwiches later and make him a turkey soup, too. Our celebrations center around food and family, not presents. On Christmas day, we'll have him come here for dinner and we'll do a big pork roast, with baked potatoes, squash, carrots, onions, etc.

    You've got a lucky father turbo-1. Yes, the family is the best part of Christmas.

    Roast pork and noodles, citrus salad and Aebleskiver.

    Lol, Lutefisk, the one thing I never wanted to learn how to make. My Grandmother made it every Yule, even the smell of it can make me turn green.

    hypatia:
    Lutefisk was originally a method for making the non-digestive fish "longe" edible. One firstly dried the fish by hanging it on wires or putting it on the cliffs(klippfisk). Then putting the dried fish in caustic soda sollution. After the caustic soda, the fish is "washed" or rinsed with water, to remove any remaining caustic soda. voila! youve got lutefisk :D..

    We also have a magnificent dessert: cloudberrys with cream milk and sugar.. :).. actually quite good..
