No Easter without Mämmi

The probably most traditional Finnish Easter desserts is Mämmi. It is made of water, rye flour, and powdered malted rye, seasoned with dark molasses, salt and dried powdered orange zest. Normally Mämmi is eaten cold with milk and sugar.

This dish really divides opinions. Some love it, others hate it. Even some jokes about Finns are based on this quite unusual black dessert. But Mämmi is definitely not as bad as its reputation. You should definitely try it yourself. During Easter time Mämmi can be bought at every supermarket. In some places it is even available the whole year through.

Enjoy and have nice holidays!
