Good to know about sourdough

What exactly is sourdough and how do you take care of it?

Sourdough is comprised of flour and water that you mix and let stand a few days until the natural yeasts and lactic acid bacteria grow. People use wheat flour or rye flour most often, but you can also use other types of flours, or combine flours.

Swedish Semla

A Semla is a wheat flour bun filled with almond past and whipped cream.

An old tradition in Sweden is to eat Semla only once a year at Fettisdagen (Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday) which is an old Christian tradition, but some of us likes to enjoy Semlor even more often then once a year, so the bakeries usually bakes them throughout the winter season.
