Let your palate remember the tastes from your vacation. Why don't you try to make a genuine äggost from Bohuslän?

Äggost  is a special kind of cheese cake, which was common in the southern part of Bohuslän. It was served as a dessert or as a dish with herring. Today it is a beloved treat served on special occasions.


4 l whole milk

Beat the eggs and pour them with sour cream in a pan. Add the milk and bring slowly to the boil while stirring the mixture.
