Turnip and Mushroom Fritters. Kaalika-seenekotletid

The great vegetable dish.

seenekaalikakotlett (9)

The great vegetable dish. This time I used salted mushroom .

As Estonia has an abundance of forest, we like to pick berries and mushrooms.

and for winter Mushrooms are marinated, or salted or fermented. Or dried

Salted mushroom:
How to remove additional salt are a lot of tips.
My South Estonian relatives told me that they boiling salted mushroom in milk. And after that mushroom look and taste like a fresh.
Second option is  to boil mushroom just in the water.
And the simplest one.  Put mushroom to soak the night before.

Fresh chanterelle: The mushrooms are cleaned without water, with only a clean, dry towel and paring knife. Heat the chanterelle in a skillet without fat/butter until water has evaporated.

Frozen mushroom : melt, fry slightly.

Mõisküla #visitestonia #Eesti100 #estonia100 #mõisküla

moisakyla (4)Mõisaküla is a town in southern Estonia, part of Mulgi Parish of Viljandi County, just next to the border of Latvia. It is considered to be the smallest town in Estonia. The town has 32 streets, with the total length of 15,5 km.

Mulgi- Mulgimaa is area in South-Estonia, with own culture, traditions, food and dialect.

Mõisaküla was born because of railway. Trains do not travel here today… This is just one last and least wagon…

moisakyla (6)This area and culture is perfect example about the globalisation already in 19th of century. During the American Civil War from 1861 to 1865 was lack of cotton and price was very high.
So, was demand for alternatives. South Estonia, Mulgimaa has perfect conditions for cultivation of linen. Bondage was in Estonia abolished 1816, but still farmers were very poor and land was owned by landlords. But because of America and demand for linen, farmers gets enough money to buy from landlords land and farms. And this area become rich and successful. This made others little bit jealous and they started to call people and this area Mulgimaa 🙂
In Latvia means word- Mulk- ” silly” and in Estonia it means “hole”- in meaning that the all richness went in to the one hole…:)

My maternal family is from Mõisaküla area and there lives my aunt and cousin.
Near to the Mõisküla is Vanamõisa. My grandmother and grandfather died long time ago  but their house is still here.

Estonia is the Paradise of Introverts 🙂 Estonians saying : A good neighbour is one where you can just barely see the smoke of their chimney from your window.’
In South- Estonia  you can feel, how is to be the last soul in the Earth 🙂 You can drive through the Estonian countryside and not see another living soul for miles.

There is a lot of information on the track about the flora, fauna and birds, and there are also resting benches along the track.

  • Before you arrive in Pärnu, visit Lottemaa.

In Estonia

  • Handicrafts made of linen, wool, wood, juniper or limestone. Haapsalu scarf.

Estonian Food you Must to Try

  • visit Estonian supermarkets and buy some Estonian dairy products: kohuke, kodujuust (cottage cheese), hapukoor (sour cream). Buy Kama and rye bread, handicraft beer
  • In restaurants ask for quark cake, soups with dumplings, meat balls or cabbage. Semolina cream, quark cream or bread cream. Local lake fish. Drink kefir, kvass or local beer. Värska mineral water. And Estonian tap water and forest spring water are clean, pure and drinkable.

vaade karjamaadele
Culture:

  • check and google timetable for Viljandi Folk, Pärnu Weekend, Jazzkaar, PÖFF or Laulupidu.
  • buy movie about Estonian history: ” Nimed marmortahvlil”, ” Tants aurukatla ümber”, ” “Tuulepealne maa”. Or ” Malev”, this is comedy and pseudo history, but very good summary about Estonians.
  • Music: Pärt ja Tüür. Tõnis Mägi, The Sun; Metsatöll and TradAttack. And read my blog posts. I gave a lot of links for good Estonian music.

An international and famous dessert with a small Estonian twist and ingredients

I have not words to express how tasty, watermouthing and great dessert it is. Small apple pieces and cowberries give juiciness and moisture and wonderful sour and sweet flavour. Barley groats give a structure and make this dessert more interesting,

And again real Estonian flavour: barley groats, apples and cowberries. You just have to try this.
