Finland: Mammi 🇫🇮

The week after hakarl was a rough one.

The consumption of rotten fish meat left me queasy for the two days after the ill-advised event, and later that week, I got a likely-unrelated stomach bug.

By Friday afternoon, five days after Hakarl in the Park, I was on the BRAT diet and giving my stomach the digestive equivalent of a spa weekend.

But it was Easter weekend, too, and that meant it was time for me to tackle another Scandinavian country – Finland, which I skipped a few weeks ago as I looked for reindeer meat to cook as an entree and sahti to salve my thirst.

After one round of adventurous eating, I was nowhere near ready to tackle reindeer meat.

I was, however, feeling up for Finland’s Easter tradition, mammi. This rich, rye and molasses pudding seemed like a great way to transition my stomach back to normalcy.

I was right. Served with a splash of cream, mammi was an excellent, easy to make, delicious treat.

Sautéed reindeer will have to wait for another day. Mammi, on the other hand, well, I’ll eat that any day.
