I’ve never found another person who ate this product, although the fact that it is still found in groceries stores leads me to believe somebody does. It is a Swedish rye bread that comes in a flat round about the size of an record album. It’s called knackebrod (put a pair of dots over both the “a” and the “o”), and we always pronounced it with a hard “k”. The brand most commonly found in stores is Siljans, but when I was growing up, there was another brand and it was harder and crunchier than the Siljans. Here’s a website that has a picture: the noisiest bread in the world. Although some people call it crispbread, it is much better than the Wasa crackers or other ryecrisps I’ve seen for sale.
Anyway, this stuff is an excuse to eat butter. I’ll eat a third to a half a round just slathered with butter, or, if I think I should be healthier, some soft cheese like halvarti or farmer’s. Just about anything goes well on top of it, since is has a very mild flavor–my Mom likes her’s with peanut butter and my grandfather (the Swede) put honey on it. Man, I almost bought some today, now I wish I had!!
