corner view - staple food - stockholm




I guess this is not by definition staple food. You could use the strawberries for jam and then they would qualify, right? And potatoes are the pasta of Sweden ( at least a generation ago). Anyway, this time of year this is my favourite food.

Please visit Spain Daily for the links to all the other corner views.

  2. These would be staples in my book! I love the look of the tiny new potatoes, fresh from the garden just waiting to be cooked and tossed with butter and parsley.

  8. I figured "staple food" was just anything you eat all the time, so I think those things count. My middle child tries to live off of nothing but starches, except strawberries are one of the few fresh things she will eat, so we have a lot of strawberries and potatoes here, too.

  23. delicious summer food! The new potatoes you get in scandinavia are the best. I always love to eat them when I stay in Finland. They are much better than what we get here in Berlin.
