In the last few years I've gotten interested in my heritage, and have done Swedish cooking for Christmas. I make Swedish meatballs, ham, potatoes au Gratin, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, salad, rolls, pickled cucumbers and some other side dishes.
I will probably make several kinds of soup, and some hearty appetizers like vasterbotten pie [only I'll use a sharp cheddar], shrimp, and egg salad with apple bits on little pieces of toasted rye.
For dessert I usually make a dromtarta, Swedish apple or rhubarb pie, ginger cookies, chocolate balls, and a soft ginger cake with cardamom. This year I'm planning to also do a punsch cake with lingonberry preserves, or else a lingonberry spice roll cake.
