Not "Viking Age," But Still Pretty Nordic

A recipe for roast duck and caramelized potatoes that are apparently a major dish in Denmark. Potatoes are of course a New World phenomenon, but I suppose the Vikings can claim a connection there (more the Norwegians via Iceland than the Danes, though).

In any event, this aspect of the recipe gives it some legitimate Viking cred:
"Then add the potatoes, holding a pot lid as a shield to prevent the hot caramel from spattering onto you..."
Very festive, and appropriate for a holiday feast in the Mead-Hall.

Speaking of which, I started a batch of Christmas mead not long ago. The yeast is making merry in big steel cauldron even now.
