Post by Hank W. » Sat May 17, 2003 10:57 am

4 dl dry peas
2 l water
1 onion
600 g salted pork shoulder
1 carrot
marjoram or thyme
Soak peas in water overnight. Boil and pick empty peels off.
Peel and chop the onion. Add peeled carrot (whole). Add onion,
meat and marjoram or thyme. Boil covered for 1 - 1.5 hours,
until the meat is done. Discard carrot. Cube meat and put it
back. Serve hot with mustard.

(easier from a can)

Carelian Stew (Karjalanpaisti)


450 g beef, cubed (1 pound)
450 g pork, cubed (1 pound)
2 carrots (peeled and cubed)
Small swdish turnip (peeled and cubed)
Onion (peeled and chopped)
Black peppers (ten to twenty)
Bay leaf or two
salt to taste
(Butter)
(Water)
Brown the meat in butter in a hot frying pan or a pot (one
of those stovetop-oven-proof). It is easiest to do it a little
at a time. Saute the onion. Place all ingredients in the pot.
Add enough water to cover. Place lid on top and put in
150 C oven. Stir every now and then.

The stew is done when meat starts to fall apart. It takes at
least three hours, but this stew can stay in the oven for
hours. It is really very forgiving, just make sure the meat
does not dry. If there is too much water, you can place the
pot without lid on hot stove and let some of the water
evaporate. If you want more taste, feel free to add broth
instead of water.

Serve with mashed potatoes and grated carrots.

Finnish pancake / Pannukakku

Ingredients:

2,5 dl of wheat flour
5 dl of milk/water
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
1-2 tablespoons of vheat bran (natural fiber, makes the pancake healthier, no negative effect on taste)
1 egg (or more)

Mix the dry ingredients. Add milk or water and mix. Finally mix the egg(s) in. The oven should be heated to about 200C. Put some tablespoons of butter to the baking plate and add the pancake batter on it. The pancake should be about 1,5-2cm thick. Bake in the oven until the surface of the pancake is pleasantly brown. Higher temperature makes the pancake soft from the inside. Make it as you like.
