Food Cards

This was sent by a Finnish postcrosser. Originally it had a licorice candy bag glued on it. She wrote that the candies are called Sisu Horna and they are strong, salty (salmiakki) licorice. They are apparently white/beige pressed candies and turn to powder if you break them in half. The descriptions were so vivid, my mouth just puckers thinking about the salty candies. The Northern Europeans love bitter, salty flavors like licorice. I try to be bold when my friends hand me a bag of licorice but I end up spitting them out.

This card is by a German postcorsser who ate this creamed spinach for lunch. I love self-made cards such as this  - it's a wonderful way to recycle and to share foods you like to eat.
