One of the most traditional of traditions for a Finn is the making of joulutorttu – finnish prune tarts.
These are a labour of love if you choose to make your own jam and dough. The pastry needs to be made the day before and left overnight in the fridge. The Prunes in Port and Spice Syrup can be made weeks prior… just make sure you make enough so you can have them on ice cream!
You can use any jam of your choice but traditionally it’s a prune jam.
These are wonderful and festive, Christmas just isn’t Christmas till these come out.
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
