Newsletter ServiceNovember/December 2022NOVEMBER ISSUEHappy Father’s Day! Wait…What?No, you didn’t enter a time warp. We’re talking about Norwegian Father’s Day! It’s celebrated every year on the second Sunday in November. Originally in the 1930’s, Norway celebrated in June like the United States. However, in 1949, the government changed the date to early November. This was done purely for economic reasons: it boosted sagging sales in shops in the runup to the Christmas shopping season. Other neighboring countries followed suit. Estonia, Finland, Iceland, and Sweden also celebrate their fathers on the same day.So how can you celebrate your father, Norwegian-style? With gifts, of course! Common presents in Norway include hand-knitted items, coffee mugs, socks, ties, and gloves. Traditionally gifts are not extravagant, but rather are subtle tributes to a cherished parent. You can also make the day all about dad by making him breakfast in bed, or any favorite meal. Special desserts are of course always a favorite! November 13th is coming up. Don’t forget to wish your father a God Farsdag!Article photo for download:https://www.dropbox.com/s/xgqh3rbixoxyz0h/FathersDay.jpg?dl=0Rakfisk: Fermented Trout Draws a CrowdOne would think a fermented fish would not draw too much attention as it sounds like something of an acquired taste. Right? Wrong! Norway is yet again testing our assumptions as fermented trout, known as rakfisk, entices quite the crowd to the city of Fagernes. For the past 30 years, Fagernes has held the “Norsk Rakfisk Festival,” drawing more than 25,000 people each year. The festival celebrates food traditions and features local products/handmade items. Of course, one of the main events at the festival is the rakfisk competition where a panel of judges assess the taste, smell, and texture of rakfisk brought by several rakfisk producers. This year will surely be an exciting one as it is the 30th anniversary of the festival; the celebration goes from November 3rd to 5th. To feel like part of the festival from afar, pair some fermented fish with lefse, sour cream, and onion. You may not draw quite the crowd as does Fagernes, but you will have experienced yet another Norwegian food tradition.

Det finnes mange historier om hvordan lutefisken oppstod. Hva som egentlig hendte, n?r det skjedde og hva som fikk folk til ? legge t?rrfisken i lut er det ingen som vet.Lutefisk er en viktig del av den norske mattradisjonen og spises over hele landet. Lutefisk er s? sterkt knyttet til den norske/nordiske tradisjonen at til og med utvandrere til Amerika har tatt med seg tradisjonen, noe som har f?rt til at lutefisk er popul?rt i visse deler av USA.Lutefisk ble for f?rste gang nevnt i den norske litteraturen av Olaus Magnus i 1555. Han beskriver hvordan lutefisk tilberedes og spises: Den t?rre stokkfisken f?r ligge i sterk lut i to d?gn, s? skylles den i ferskvann i ett d?gn f?r den kokes og spises. Den serveres med saltet sm?r og er h?yt verdsatt, selv av konger!Likevel vet man ikke sikkert hvorfor og n?r man begynte ? behandle t?rrfisk med lut. T?rrfisk er usaltet fisk, t?rket under ?pen himmel i frisk bris ved temperatur s? vidt over frysepunktet - enkelt og energisparende. En spesielt popul?r teori g?r ut p? at lutefisken oppstod etter en brann i et t?rrfisklager i Lofoten. Etter brannen var fisken dekket av vann og sot. Verdifull mat skulle ikke kastes, og da lofotv?ringene smakte p? fisken etter ? ha vasket den n?ye, gjorde de oppdagelsen som vi fortsatt spiser i dag.En litt mer sannsynlig teori er kanskje heller at noen for lenge siden fant ut at utvanningen av t?rrfisk gikk raskere med litt lut i vannet – og resultatet ble lutefisk i stedet for ekstra raskt utvannet t?rrfisk. Kystlandsbefolkningen kunne dessuten skaffet seg fersk fisk n?r de ville, og det er derfor st?rre grunn til ? tro at lutefisken ble oppfunnet i innlandet.Lutefisk er kalorifattig, inneholder en del proteiner (men mindre enn vanlig fisk), en god del selen, vitamin B12 og litt vitamin D. Tilbeh?r som bacon, saus og mye sm?r, i tillegg til et h?yt innhold av salt, gj?r derimot sitt til at retten i det hele passer bedre til fest enn til hverdags.TRANSLATIONLutefisk Season Begins: The History of LutefiskThis week, lutefisk season opens in our country. There are many stories about how lutefisk came to be. What actually happened, when it happened and what made people put dry fish into lye, no one knows. Lutefisk is an important part of Norwegian food tradition and is eaten all over the country. Lutefisk is so strongly linked to the Norwegian/Nordic tradition that even immigrants to America brought the tradition with them, which led to lutefisk being popular in certain parts of the United States. Lutefisk was first mentioned in Norwegian literature by Olaus Magnus in 1555. He describes how lutefisk is prepared and eaten: The dry stockfish is left in strong lye for two days, then it is rinsed in fresh water for one day before it is boiled and eaten. It is served with salted butter and is highly prized, even by kings!Nevertheless, we do not know for certain why and when people started treating t?rrfisk (dried fish) with lye. T?rrfisk is unsalted and dried under the open sky in a fresh breeze at a temperature just above freezing - simple and energy-efficient. A particularly popular theory is that the lutefisk originated after a fire in a t?rrfisk storehouse in Lofoten. After the fire, the fish was covered in water and soot. Valuable food should not be thrown away, and when the Lofotenians tasted the fish after carefully washing it, they made the discovery that we still eat today. A slightly more likely theory is perhaps that someone a long time ago found that the dilution of t?rrfisk went faster with a little lye in the water - and the result was dry fish instead of extra quickly diluted dry fish. The coastal population could also obtain fresh fish whenever they wanted, and there is therefore greater reason to believe that the lutefisk was invented inland. Lutefisk is low in calories, contains some protein (but less than regular fish), a good amount of selenium, vitamin B12 and a little vitamin D. Toppings such as bacon, sauce and lots of butter, in addition to a high content of salt, on the other hand, make it so the dish as a whole is more suitable for holidays than for everyday life.Norwegian Potato Dumplings (Raspeball)This traditional Norwegian dish is a perfect dish for the colder months of the year. These hearty dumplings also pair wonderfully with lamb meat, smoked sausage, or bacon.Ingredients:2 1/4 lb. shredded raw potatoesHeaping 3 cups potatoes, peeled, cooked, mashed, then cooled1 1/4 cup barley flour2 tsp. saltDirections:1. Mix the shredded raw potatoes with the cold boiled mashed potatoes.2. Add the barley flour and 1 teaspoon of the salt and mix.3. Put on large saucepan of water to boil and add 1 teaspoon salt.4. Form a round ball by using a tablespoon and your hand.5. Place raspeballer gently into softly boiling water and let them simmer for about 45 minutes.6. Serve the dumplings immediately.Source: https://www.foodnorway.com/norwegian-potato-dumplings-raspeball/ Article photo for download:https://www.dropbox.com/s/2pxelzsm3x7dfan/Raspeball.jpg?dl=0DECEMBER ISSUEFabulous Facts: Christmas in NorwayEach year, Trafalgar Square in London features a massive Christmas tree. That tree is actually a present from Norway. Oslo has been sending a tree to England every year since 1947 as a thank you for British support during World War II.The julenisse is Norway’s elusive Christmas gnome, who sports a white beard and a red cap. Historically the julenisse has been known to help lighten the farmer’s chores and keep the farm safe. Nowadays, the nisse brings gifts to well-behaved Norwegian children. Don’t forget to keep him happy by leaving out a generous bowl of porridge!“Tre n?tter til Askepott,” a Cinderella tale, has been a Christmas TV tradition since the 1990s. Strangely enough, this is a Czech version of the classic story, dubbed into Norwegian by a single actor. Watching it is so popular that it airs every year on NRK, Norway’s national broadcasting channel. To see the trailer from the 2021 Norwegian remake of “Tre n?tter til Askepott,” click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-YVi_UsGqoFind the almond! This is a game where the family eats rice porridge on Christmas Eve. There is one almond hidden in the porridge, and whoever gets it is the proud recipient of… a pig made of delicious marzipan! Everyone eats well during juletiden, or Christmastime, even the birds. It’s common to see sheaves of wheat or oats that have been placed in the trees for the birds to feast on.Article photo for download:https://www.dropbox.com/s/2v43j4r8oxqmzj9/Christmas.jpg?dl=0Increasing Focus on Mental HealthIn Norway, as in many places, youth feel it is taboo to discuss mental health and ask for help. Because of this, the Norwegian government is taking strides to invest heavily in resources that will help young people with mental health. As part of this effort, Prime Minister Jonas Gahr St?re visited the Youth Square in Drammen, Norway, to learn what they are doing to battle mental health. Drammen is a good example as they have gathered resources such as social services, health, and mental health services all in one place and have made it free for those between 13 and 25. These offerings are invaluable and Gahr St?re hopes to include the idea of having access to several services in one place in the upcoming mental health plan. He stated, “We need to do this better to reach our young people. If we reach them earlier, I think we can solve the problems before it becomes a diagnosis.” The government’s plan is to be presented in 2023.Article photo for download:https://www.dropbox.com/s/qzkrsf6i3blg4e0/MentalHealth.jpg?dl=0Beware the Jólak?tturinnSomething large and fluffy stalks across Iceland, its hot, hungry breath crystallizing in the frigid air, forming icicles on its bristly whiskers. Its ever-extended claws crunch deep into the snow as it prowls from place to place to place. This is the Jólak?tturinn, or the Christmas Cat. Resembling an enormous Norwegian Forest cat, it is the beloved pet of the 13 prankster Yule Lads who deliver presents, and their lovely troll mother Gr?la. The Jólak?tturinn seeks out anyone who does not receive new warm clothes for Christmas. If it finds you proudly wearing even one new mitten, it will pass you by. Otherwise, it’s dinner time for kitty. This may seem like a strangely specific motivation, but back in the day the whole family, including the children, spent their evenings carding, spinning and knitting wool. Family members found slacking off might not get new clothes for Christmas. In contrast, you could always gift fresh woolen garments to keep needy neighbors off the menu.So, the next time Great Aunt Edda gifts you boring Christmas socks tell her, “Takk fyrir!” (thank you!) and take comfort in the fact you can face the long dark winter ahead, toasty-warm and uneaten!Article photo for download:https://www.dropbox.com/s/9e5ztpcc77eh542/YuleCat.jpg?dl=0TRANSLATIONKronprins Haakon skal p? tur over Gr?nland [fra Mai 2022]En kronprins, en tidligere skil?per og flere forskere skal p? tur.
