Compact dark loaf with a distinctive taste of rye, malt and sugar beet molasses is a speciality of the archipelago. Every village has its very own variation. My favorite is Rosalalimpan with sunflower seeds.
Another popular Finnish comestible product is the liver sausage. It’s typically served as a spread or in slices on open-faced sandwiches. It pairs excellently with gherkins or – as in this case – blackcurrants. Even the wasp seems to agree.
