Troll cream was a magical part of our New Year’s Eve celebration. To us youngsters, it was truly wizardry because the volume expanded as we stirred. And we did not mind sitting and stirring as long as we had a good book in our hands.
A different kind of troll cream combining the lingonberries with currants and strawberries, and topping it off with vanilla sauce.
Wash berries and remove all unripe berries and foreign objects.
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until the volumes quadruples. about 15 minutes.
Serve in a crystal dessert bowl sprinkled with a few lingonberries. If available, add a few mint leaves. Cookies are a great accompaniment, or serve in Crisp Wafer Cups (Krumkakeskåler). Serves 8
