Tree Trolls! in the Rommegrot Pot
At the Scandinavian Festival, one of the treasures I purchased was the book Tree Trolls! in the Rommegrot Pot. Set in the North woods of Minnesota the book details the adventures of Grandma Pauline, who tangles with the trolls while out hunting for blueberries and has to be rescued by her husband and grandchildren. They trick the trolls using a pot of rommegrot. Rommegrot is a Scandinavian dessert. The book is illustrated by the author Marjory Johnson Wood (pictured) and features rosemaling by Teresa Ann McCue. You can reach the author who calls herself a Tree Troll ambassador at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find a recipe for Rommegrot here, a sour cream pudding from the Sons of Norway website recipe box.
