A younger cousin visited me and we talked about older times... I asked if she had ever eaten knäckebröd - known as hardtack - and she had no idea what I was talking about. I gave her this website to read and see what it looks like:

My grandmothers used to make it, and we made it sometimes, but were also able to buy the thin, round shapes at a local Scandinavian fish market that carried all sorts of goodies to eat. I like to break off a piece and put pickled herring and onions on it.. yum..

I liked my: ....." Reikäleipä " with ..... BUTTER . lots of it ...! Yes; Herring, was acceptable, but Butter was mandatory on mine...

June: You are making me hungry - just reading this.

My father also used lots of butter... but we kids used to put just about anything on ours... peanut butter, jelly, baked beans, etc.... :)
