Leksands Crispbread – An Introduction
We have long been huge fans of Swedish crispbread maker Leksands. Pioneers in quality crispbread for everyday and festive occasions, they have a wide range of crispbreads suitable for everything from breakfast to dinner – snacks and nibbles. To help you choose, or simply learn a little more about Leksands, we’ve put together this handy guide.
Leksands bakery dates back to 1817 when Jakobs Karin started making crispbread just a stone’s throw from where the bakery is located today, and sold it to other nearby farms and the Leksands tourist centre. Leksands range has naturally changed through and with the times, but the high quality and great taste remains.
Leksands Normalgräddat – Original Rye Crispbread
A great all-rounder. Made with only four ingredients – wholemeal rye, salt, water and a little yeast, this crispbread’s subtle flavour makes it a popular choice and it compliments any topping sweet or savoury. Great with paté and gherkins or freshly sliced cucumber – also perfect for dipping, try with hummus or guacamole.
Leksands Brungräddat – Brownbaked Rye Crispbread
Brungräddat is a smooth, dark and rich tasting crispbread made from wholemeal rye. It is baked longer than your normal crispbread to further develop the flavours and the resulting crispbread is flavoursome and robust. It goes fantastically with a strong cheese or egg and Kalles kaviar – the all-Swedish breakfast combination.
Leksands Mini-Rut – Crispy Rye Squares 200g
A true Swedish staple, tender and crispy rye crispbread in the classic rectangular shape. Crispy Squares has been baked following Leksands traditional family recipe with all natural ingredients: wholegrain rye, water from Leksands’ own spring, yeast, and a pinch of salt. The checked pattern comes from using a special rolling pin on the dough. Not only does this give the bread an attractive pattern, it also makes it tender and crispy. Mini-Rut is a favourite with children and can easily be broken up into little rye squares to use as yoghurt topping or a little snack.

A wonderful snack-like crispbread flavoured with girolle mushroom and lingonberry, this crispbread works particularly well with a rich paté; the slight sweetness of the lingonberry compliments the flavour really well.
