This week we are seeking the name of the country where potatoes and apples, both included in this dish, are national favourites.

INGREDIENTS

2lb floury potatoes

2lb cooking apples

3ozs breadcrumbs

8ozs butter

1oz honey

12fl ozs milk

4fl ozs double cream

1/2tsp ground nutmeg

1 ground clove

METHOD

Steam the potatoes in their skins until just cooked. Peel, core and finely slice the apples. Place in a pan with 6oz butter and sauté until lightly cooked, then add the honey and sprinkle with nutmeg and clove.

Peel the potatoes and mash, adding the milk slowly. When smooth, add the apple mixture and the cream, then beat well. Transfer to a baking dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and dot with the remaining butter. Bake at 200ºC for 35 minutes, allowing the top to crisp and brown. Serve hot.

ADDITIONAL CLUES

  • This potato and apple pudding is traditionally served with goose, pork and duck.

  • Situated on the Baltic coastline, this place overlooks southern Sweden and has been influenced by Germany and Denmark, which both have similar pudding dishes.

  • Popular drinks in the country include a mead, and a home-made honey vodka.

  • Once part of a Polish commonwealth, this place eventually become part of a greater union, which has also left its influence on the cuisine.
