ok so you might think some of this is really gross, but remeber its just culture
most of this food is only eaten in the month žorri (according to the old icelandic calendar its in late winter ! can“t remeber excacly when) therefore the name of it is žorramatur(thorrafood) haršfiskur(harš=hard, fiskur=fish)
its dried fish ! reaaallyyy good with butter ! i eat this regularaly ! slįtur(slįtur=slaughter)
its icelandic haggis ! put some sheep intestines in a sheep stomache boil it and there you either have lifrapylsa(lifra=liver, pylsa=sausage)
or blóšmör(blóš=blood, mör=internal fat)
! i like lifrapylsa more and eat it often ! really good cold with milkrice but it is eaten both hot and cold !
blóšmör is the darker one ! hįkarl(hįkarl=shark)
yep, in iceland shark doesn“t eat people, people eat shark ! but isn“t shark poisenus ? not after beeing buried for a few months and then hung up for a few months ! Yep hįkarl is really rotten shark ! i don“t really like it, but my sister does ! she used to be unstoppable while eating it ! Svišno translation
sviš is, get ready, singed sheep face ! :) yeah, we eat it ! my mom even loves eating the eye ! this is not something you eat regularaly though ! svišasulta(sviš=?, sulta=jam)
yeah, just jam made out of singed sheep faces ! whats there to say ? also not something you eat everyday ! sśrsašir hrśtspungar(sśrsašir=pickled, hrśts=rams, pungar=testicles)
yeah, another thing i don“t really like ! this is what most people think is the grossest ! the name really describes it all ! selshreifar(sels=seal, hreifar=flippers)
yeah, i don“t really have any experience with those ! they are a bit on the rarer side !
couldn“t find a pic :( lundabaggi(lunda=puffin, baggi=package)
weird name ! this has nothing to do with puffin ! this is just sheep loins wrapped in meat from the sides ! i have never tried this
sorry, couldn“t find a pic of this either :/ rśgbrauš(rśg=rye, brauš=bread)
its really good ! with butter again ! everyday food !
lousy pic, but best i could find ! hangikjöt(hangi=hung, kjöt=meat)
this is soooooo gooood ! i eat this as a lunch on chrismas *drooools* ! i want hangikjöt now ! this is smoked lamb! flatkökur(flat=flat, kökur=cakes)
just panfried bread ! good with butter and hangikjöt ! brennivķn(brenni=burning, vķn=wine)
since im only 14 ive never had this ! but its just really strong booze !
ok ! im done now !
if you read this all you get žorramat... err.. maybe just some cookies
