It's possible that you actually mean something in these posts, but I
really cannot parse it from expressions like 'consonsant meaning' and
'cognative' (even if that is intended to be 'cognitive'). Sorry, man.
And, seriously, given that I just very mildly mocked the notion of
discussion on mailing lists being anything _but_ verbal, this being
one of the quintessential verbal media, and you're still denying that
assertion on grounds I don't understand, I'd be best advised to give up
at this point.
Hey, here's something I made this evening for a bunch of Norwegians
(albeit it's a dish from a mostly Swedish holiday, Luciadagen).
Tomorrow: latkes for the home crowd, with fresh homemade applesauce.
Lussekatter / Lucia Bun
1 packet of dry yeast (note: sweet dough yeast is best to use)
150 grams butter (equals 5 1/4 oz, about 10 1/2 Tbsp, or 1/3 cup)
500 ml of milk (equals a bit over 2 cups)
1 gram of saffron (or half a teaspoon of turmeric)
150 grams of sugar (equals 5 1/4 oz, about 3/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of cardamum
~1.3 litres of plain flour (measure in a water jug) (equals 5 1/2 cups)
1 beaten egg for glazing
Melt butter in a pot. Cool a little. and then add the milk.
To break up the saffron (or turmeric), put it into a bowl or mortar,
and, with a little of the sugar, crush together.
Mix the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, cardamum and saffron (or turmeric) in
a bowl. Create a well, and pour in the milk mix. Mix until the dough
forms. It is easier with dough beaters. Add in a little extra milk or
flour, if needed.
Cover the bowl in plastic wrap, and let it raise until double the size
-- a warm room helps. Sprinkle some flour on the kneading area,
and knead the dough well. Roll into a loose log, to cut dough into bun
sizes. Roll them out into long finger-thick sausages. Shape them into
the famous Lussekatter double spiral -- julegris -- or other designs.
Place the buns onto a baking sheet, and cover in plastic. Allow them to
raise for 15 minutes. Glaze well with beaten egg, and decorate with
raisins (usually one raisin in each eye of a swirl).
Bake at 225Â°C (equals a bit under 450Â°F) for 5-8 minutes (depending on
size). Let them cool on a rack. Eat fresh with coffee or hot
