    kolibri's Note:

    This is originally a Swedish recipe, but it has been a Finnish favourite for a long time. It's unsure who Jansson was - some say it was a pastor and this dish was his only temptation - but suffice to say that it's quite delicious. Traditional recipe has julienned potatoes, but if this seems like too much work you can thinly slice them too.

      Oh this was good. I had no problem adding tall the anchovies--I love them. I did substitute low fat sour cream for the full cream and added no cheese--Along with everyone else, I say thanks, Milla!

      It's a Swedish recipe.There is no cheese in Janssons, and no garlic! Just cream - and the potatoes need to be matchsticks - not sliced rounds, otherwise you may as well make scalloped potatoes with anchovies!

      This should be made with sprats (Sprattus sprattus) and not with anchovies. The confusion arises out of the Swedish word being "Ansjovis". These are obtainable at Swedish shops in 125g tins
