Danish Midsummer in America


We celebrated Sankt Hans Eve (Midsummer’s Eve) last night with a bonfire and bread baked on wooden sticks over hot coals (called “snobroed” in Danish, literally: “twisted bread”).

Snobroed is super easy to make. It is a basic bread dough with milk in that rises for about an hour and then you divide it into the number of bread sticks you want, roll them with your hands into long rolls that you then twist around bamboo sticks and bake over the hot coals until golden brown and they sound hollow. Serve with ketchup. Pretty tasty and always a hit with kids around.
