You guessed it – potatoes! Barrels of potatoes – new and fresh from the Autumn harvest. Farmor grows enough potatoes to last the family through the long winter and to the next harvest. Potatoes are eaten at nearly every middag (dinner). No frying, roasting, or mashing required – potatoes are enjoyed for their natural flavour in Norway. They are boiled with their skin on to keep in all the potatoey-goodness. Normally, the potatoes are skinned as you eat them and are fantastic with fårikål, reinsdyrstek and kjøttkaker (lamb & cabbage, reindeer steak and meatballs).
It’s the greatest feeling being able to run downstairs and gather farm-fresh, new potatoes for dinner – there is nothing more tasty than home-grown potatoes.
