I have the pleasure to let you know that a free surströmming tasting will be arranged at the Stockholm university area (outside)! We got it approved by the university today 😊

More details will be provided next week.

Kind regards,

John

The airline may not allow it to be transported. The cans build up pressure and the amount is not known. Also you can imagine the complaints if one of the tins burst in the hold. On the other hand, think of the fun if customs decided to open it. Whatever you do, don’t try to take any into Australia. They would probably jail you and throw away the key.

Cheers,

Peter

Not sure I can stomach this, but certainly interested to try.

So the best way to do this is probably to find a restaurant or some other
place that will serve you surströmming, but should anyone get a can, do
*not* open it indoors and preferably keep the can submerged in water when
you open it. Fermentation continues in the can, which builds some pressure,
and upon opening it might greet you like the enthusiastic sprout of a whale
breathing out.

Of course, not being hit by the full force of the smell takes away some of
the memorable, exotic part of it, but that way, you'll experience it as
reasonably normal food rather than a potentially vomiting-inducing aroma.

I’d imagine this will dramatically change the budget for the activity — I imagined it would be a volunteer organized activity, like some beer tastings have been done in the past, and will be done again in Stockholm.

Traditional “special” foods are generally sold at ludicrous prices, and Sweden isn’t known to be cheap already as far as I’ve heard.

Can you make an estimate of how much the experience might set us back?

Cheers!

Siebrand
