Traditional Danish Food: 14 Recipes You Must Try – FamilySearch February 7, 2020

I saw this on FamilySearch – Traditional Danish Food: 14 Recipes You Must Try – FamilySearch February 7, 2020: https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/traditional-danish-food/.

Danish food is known for meats, rye bread, and fruit-and-cream desserts. If you have ancestors from Denmark, you may be able to gain a bit of insight into their lives through the foods they ate. Better yet, visit Denmark to experience the food and the culture for yourself.

If you have family recipes passed down from your Danish ancestors, record the recipes on FamilySearch Memories to save them for the future and share them with your relatives.

Traditional food in Denmark is based on what could easily be farmed or gathered during the country’s short summers. Cabbage, root vegetables, meat, fish, and rye bread were all staples. Wild berries are also a favorite in Danish cuisine. Try these recipes to get a taste for Denmark’s native ingredients.
