Sweet and dark island bread


Have you tried the delicious black Archipelago Bread (Saaristolaisleipä)? It’s one of the biggest and most popular exports of the small island group Åland between Finland and Sweden.



This dark sweet bread is made from wheat, rye, malt and dark syrup. It works perfectly with fish toppings like silli or smoked salmon. Archipelago bread can be found in every supermarket.

Enjoy!
