The recipe and directions do no match. There is no suet in the recipe...
I made this for my elderly Danish MIL. She said it was better than hers. She loves it on her Rye Bread ( a Danish recipe I got from her and make for her ). Thank you Bergy, as my MIL can't make these things for herself anymore it really makes her happy to have it again. And you have helped to put me in the DIL hall of fame!!!
As close as you can get. My cousin, who is at deli chef says it is very close to the recipe he uses in the store. I really enjoyed it. Thank you Bergy.
