Very Swedish

A beautiful image of a typical summer setting in a small place, on the island of Öja, the southernmost island in Stockholm’s archipelago.

The lighthouse is Sweden’s oldest (1689). Öja hotel is open all year around – imagine the island in wintertime…

    Oh I am so happy that someone has answered my question!! Thank you! My husband kept ‘remembering’ it as a pastry. The farm pretzel makes sense! I’m glad to know also the real spelling and translation! Thanks ever so much!

  3. It might be “bonn kringla”. Which in this case means simple. Direct translation would be farmer pretzels.

    Ms. not so “Ordinary Woman” lol, this is the most awesome photo! My husband is of Swedish decent and I have begged him that we could go visit.
    You may already know the answer to this, but if not and it wouldn’t be a great deal of trouble could you ask about “boon kringler” that is my spelling of hubby’s pronunciation of a pastry his grandmother used to make. I asked at a Swedish settlement in IL and no one knew even the baker. Thanks, Jill! I LOVE your blog!!
