These ‘Ansjovis’ may sound like they are anchovies, but no. They are small sprats, and much much milder in taste than anchovies. The most common use is in ‘Jansson’s Temptaion’ – a potato gratin that is usually reserved for the big occasions like Easter and Christmas. Please don’t make it with regular anchovies though, the flavour will be overpowering. Swedish confusion-power at its finest – and a nice talking piece at dinner.
This is a chilled item.
