Swedish Christmas Recipes for Julskinka and Christmas Sausage

A key element of Swedish Christmas celebrations is the food.

Christmas ham or Julskinka is traditionally served on Christmas Eve as part of the festivities. Often the dinner may be a smorgasbord which includes Christmas ham(julskinka), pickled herrings (sild), Christmas sausage (potatis korv), potato salad, pickled cabbage and a range of cooked meats.

As Christmas Eve is the time when Swedes celebrate Christmas and open their presents this is the most vital meal of the holiday.

Christmas Sausage or Potatis Korv

Serves 8

2 pounds ground lean pork
2 pounds ground lean beef
6 medium raw potatoes, shredded
3 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion, chopped

Bring a stockpot of salted water to a simmer.

In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients well together. Form into rolls about 4 inches long and 2 inches in diameter. Cut parchment paper into 6-inch lengths and wrap sausage well, tying both ends tightly with string. Place rolls into the simmering water.
Cook slowly for about 45 minutes. Remove sausages from water and let cool before unwrapping.

Serve piping hot on the Christmas table with Swedish mustard (senap).
