Gorgeous Seder Foods

​As promised, we’re going to be releasing the menu for the Viking Seder today, but rather than a bunch of dumb ol’ words, we’re posting photos all day of the prep!
We’ll start you off with this lovely photo of the first stages of charoset. Our theory is, if apples are good, pears and apples must be better!
Viking Seder - roasted hazelnuts for the charoset - Groennfell Meadery

​Roasted Hazelnuts, about to be hand-cracked because this charoset is indeed a reminder of our labor, but this is a labor of love.

Viking Seder - beef side ready to be slow-roasted - Groennfell Meadery

​Although we didn’t have time for the bread to rise, we definitely had time to slow-roast a 28-pound beef side for two full days.


Beautiful. Just beautiful.
