Swedes Explain: Midsommar

Today on the podcast, we ask Erik to discuss the flavors of Midsommar – new potatoes, strawberries and pickled herring. And then we discuss how to get rid of those flavors with a bit of schnapps!

More DISASTER Strawberry news….

It seems I missed this story in The Local over the weekend. When I say Swedes take their strawberries seriously, I really mean it. And no, it’s not a joke. It’s a real story.  Forget stealing cars or purses…. strawberries are the hot commodity here.

A distaster of Swedish proportions

This headline is in The Local Sweden online news today.

Once again, if this is the biggest disaster Sweden faces, I’m glad to live in this country.
