Four Foods You Should Try This Summer In Sweden

  1. Saffron honey ice cream. Saffron, the world’s most expensive spice, is widely used in Swedish food like St Lucy’s buns, pancakes and even soups. You can find it served in cones at Björnen & Lejonet kiosks, and if this is not enough for you, 500ml buckets by Järna Glass available in a majority of common grocery stores should be enough.
  2. Seafood paté. From more affordable options in tubes to exclusive patés from Swedish market halls (saluhallar) with big pieces of crayfish. Serve it with a toast and enjoy!
  3. Swedish strawberries. Strawberries do not sound so unique, yet there is nothing that tastes better on a hot Swedish summer day. They are sold on every corner and it’s hard to miss them.
  4. Smoked or cured salmon. Maybe you have heard of gravlax, named after Swedish gravad lax. It’s too hot to cook at home, and right now it’s even forbidden to grill. It’s the perfect time to enjoy your cured salmon, served with potatoes and dill.
