black currant preserves, lingonberry jam, and our favorite find, pearl sugar. To put it simply, pearl sugar is to granulated sugar as coarse sea salt is to regular table salt. Sprinkle it on top of scones, breads and muffins, where it will stay white and crunchy, or mix it into cinnamon swirl bread and thick waffles for melting pockets of caramelized sweetness. (There's also an intriguing recipe for cinnamon buns on the back of the box.) We can't wait to sprinkle it on top of a pie, for an extra crunchy crust. Next trip: Hit the food first, and save the Tromsö bed and Bjursta table for later. Related Posts
