lohikukkonen

A close relative of kalakukko, lohikukkonen makes for a great snack any time of the day.

The salmon is kind of irrelevant. The filling could be any type of fish that's available. The main point of this handy food is the chewy rye crust.

  2. Various bakeries,stores, and markets should carry them from time to time. Kalakukko is quite similar and can be found in better grocery stores.

  3. NAM!!! I want to make this, but first I have to figure out how to make rye bread, which requires some kind of starter and dark rye flour which I don't even think I can get?! So frustrating. Looks delicious.

  4. Some food co-ops/speciality stores carry dark rye flour, at least in the midwest. Maybe you can find it online? An easy starter can be made with hapankorppu and warm water. They used to be sold in the states as Finncrisp crackers.

  5. ah, what a great tip for the starter! FinnCrisp I can often find. I'll have to search around for the flour... thinking mail order to Hawaii might be prohibitive. But maybe I can practice my bread making first. ty!
