Vox Hunt: The Food of My Ancestors


Show us your favorite food from the country of your heritage.
Submitted by MexicanRobot.

Like a good number of Americans, I'm pretty mongrel in a manner of speaking, but I have fairly strong Danish bloodlines, and butter cookies were a real favorite in my grandmother's house:

My wife's family has a good amount of Danish heritage, too, and every Christmas, we make kringler.  But we don't  shape them like the pretzel-looking things I'm finding on the web.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. Scrumptious looking stuff.What about aebleskiver? Do you make those?


  2. What about aebleskiver?I know of it, but it's never been made in my family that I can recall. To be honest, I figure much of my culinary practices are fairly congruent with some of mainstream America– a small sampling of the various cultures that comprise it. That's why I have enjoyed reading your cooking entries, as well as canarygirl's; because there is so much intermingling of a similar nature. I think you know what I mean; after a while cultural dishes change, and mingle somewhat with the prevailing cuisine. (Of course, this happens all over the world.)


  3. Ah, yes, part of what makes it so much fun.
