Abba Kalles creamed Caviar, Abba Swedish cod roe and tomato in a toothpaste tube

Buy Scandinavian caviar in a tube here.

Creamed cod roe is an interesting product. The cod eggs are mixed with potato and a little tomat (tomato) paste and sometimes dill. The mixture is marketed in a 'toothpaste' style tube which is ingenious as it is thrifty -you use all of the product and you can control how much you use. If you like a briney taste I think you would enjoy this, since it is mixed with the potato and tomato the taste is not the same as with plain brined caviar, the sacs have all been blended so there is no crunch. In the photo the cracker is has mayo (also from a tube) covered with sliced egg and then a squiggle of caviar to decorate and enhance to taste of the egg. Really good brands of creamed caviar are Abba's Kalles caviar, Norway's Mills cavair and Larsen's Danish creamed caviar.

If cod roe is not your thing you can also get Abba mackerel and tomato or Abba salmon pate in a tube. And crab and tuna also come in tubes and are great for taking on road trips or camping.
I prefer eating this on the dark sliced European style rye bread I talked about yesterday or on a bit of Crispbread.
Seen here Crisp Bread has been around since the Viking exploration and was a staple of their diet.
Crisp bread in Swedish: knäckebröd, spisbröd, hårdbröd, Danish: knækbrød, Norwegian: knekkebrød, Finnish: näkkileipä is a flat and dry Nordic type of bread or cracker, containing mostly rye flour.
Crispbread is a staple at the store where we enjoy pieces of it covered with peanut butter. High protein high fiber a perfect snack! An interesting fact about knackebrod: If you have never seen the bread, they are bigger than a dinner plate and have a 2" hole in the center. There are about 12 rounds in a package. There are serving pieces for them that consist of a large wood disk with a cylinder in the middle that you use to hold the bread in place. Kind of how those stand alone paper towel stands keep the bread upright. But originally the holes were made for a pole and the crispbread were stored above head level in the kitchen so they would stay dry and mice couldn't get to them.
