Savannah, GA. is full of old architecture and old mansions that you can tour. This is my favorite."20181203_170227.jpg""20181203_170209.jpg""20181203_170336.jpg"

When I said old architecture above, that is by US standards.

One of my 3 favorite cities in the States, along with Charleston and New Orleans.

Make sure you get some pralines, and low country boil while you're out there!!!

Always wanted to visit there since reading Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil. Great book and a good film too (although it won't  ever be the same again).

@ROman That is a lovely town. Especially  the area that has public park/gardens every other block. Beautiful. Hot and humid in the summer. Just how I like it.

Very pretty indeed @steelworker

All these are from my Sunday/Funday yesterday. Out in the snow with all my boys (five of them aged 18 months, 3yrs, 11yrs, 15yrs and 16yrs). Then home for the Norwegian xmas speciality «pinnekjøtt».

Cool pics @neph93

Can you tell me the brand of that awesome looking snowmobile sled thingy? Is it a brand that's specific to Norway? Really like that and think my boy would love it too.

Great photos Reuben! Can you tell us what’s being cooked? Is there any function of the wooden sticks? r than keeping the food off the bottom of the pot? Thanks!

@gaseousclay the best brand and classic maker of this style of sledge is STIGA, a Swedish company. You can get different versions, styles and colours but this is the classic model: https://www.stigagames.com/games_eu/snowracer-classic-steering-sledge-black-yellow

I had a little look on Amazon USA and you can buy them there but the prices seemed silly (200USD). I can get them here for 500kr. which is about 60USD. If you ever want me to proxy for you I get you a couple and send them out. They really are great fun. The steering works amazingly well, there's a snow brake and they are really robust. Me and a friend have a boys night out once a year on a proper alpine slope late at night with these once all the skiers have gone home.

@Matty123 pinnekjøtt translates roughly as "stick meat". It is lamb cutlets that have been smoked and then salted for a minimum of 6 weeks. You have to soak it for 24-48hrs before you steam it for three hours.

The sticks are birch and it is more a tradition than anything else. You can use a metal grill that fits a cooking pot if you have one. You  fill water to just below the level of the sticks and top it up as you go. Given that the water effectively becomes stock because of all the salt and fat that ends up in it, I'd guess that some flavour from the wood also becomes infused. Either way that's your gravy.

The rest of the meal consists of sausage, a mash of turnips and carrots, pickled cabbage and floury potatoes. Akkevit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akvavit) and dark beer is the obligatory beverage pairing.

Here's a post from a tour on the same subject from almost exactly two years ago: https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=8300.msg480559#msg480559
