Swedish Jellied Veal Loaf (Kalvsylta)
- Ready In:
- Total boiling time approximately 90 minutes. Bring the meat to boil in the water, skim off the foam. Add the spices and one quartered onion, cover and let it simmer for 60 minutes. Remove the meat from the bones and set it aside, return the bones to the water and continue simmering for another 20 minutes. Strain the resulting buillion and set aside while grinding the meat. Add the second onion, also quartered, to the meat during grinding - re-grinding the meat makes for a smoother finished product.
- Return the ground meat to the buillion and return to a boil. Stir in the gelatin and maintain heat for 10 minutes.
- Pour into 2 inch deep pans and let the kalvsylta set in a cool place (don't let it freeze as it will lose its integrity).

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm finally posting recipes after years of using this site. I want to be able to access treasured recipes without lugging a ton of books south with me when I move to Lake Chapala in Mexico. Recently retired after 35 years teaching Algebra to 8th graders. I learned to cook at my mother's knee (and Julia Child expanded my vision). She was a 1st generation Swedish-American. Christmas was when we immersed outselves in the Swedish culture and food. Many of the recipes I have recently posted are from her hand-written notes and recipes. My one real regret is that she would never write down the "juice" she used to make pickled herring. Favorite cookbook? I have over 100 or so. I love reading recipes. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
