This month the Sunvil Supper Club moves from Greece and baklava, to Sweden and a delicious mixed berry pie with a crumble topping. Sunvil are passionate that their clients find the “real” country when they go on one of their holidays, and what better way to do this than by cooking and eating the local food?
The pie is made with a mixture of berries, topped with a crumble or smulpaj topping, made the Swedish way by adding melted butter tothe flour and sugar, certainly easier and less messy than my usual method of rubbing the fat into the dry ingredients. For the filling I used a mixture of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, in Sweden, I am sure that the native cloudberries and lingonberries would be added to the mix.
The quantities in the recipe are generous, to serve 2 I would recommend using about a third of the ingredients for the topping, I stashed my leftover crumble topping in the freezer for later use.
Served with a large dollop of whipped cream the pie was a huge hit with only a little left over.
From now on I shall be making my crumble the Swedish way.
Have you learnt any useful tips of doing something in a different way on your holidays?
