Äggost Bohusläns cheesecake


Äggost is the traditional dessert in Bohuslän the part of Sweden that I com from, äggost is a must at the table on all celebrations. How it is seved depends on with part of bohuslän you are, in the sudern part it is sweet with sour berrys preferably strawberries, in the middle not at sweet but seved with sweet jam prefarably blackberry and in the northern parts, without sugar with pickled herring as a main dish. Bohuslän is also the place that Bohus sweater come from. This is the recipe that have been passed down in my family for at least 4 generations probably more.
