I had my neighbours on the island for dinner the other night. This is what I made for dessert.

If you have followed my other blog you are already familiar with this pie!

Since there is so man blueberries growing on the island I just stepped outside my house to pick some. I needed 5 dl and it took me about 20 minutes to pick them!
Here is the recipie:

125 g cold butter
3 dl flour
1 tbls cold water
5 dl blueberries
1 tbls potatoe flower or cornflower
3 tbls sugar

Cut the cold butter into cubes and mix in a bowl with the flour and the water (with your fingers) until a smooth doe is forming. Press out with your knuckles into a pieform. Save a bit of dough for the decoration. Add the blueberries and sprinkle the potaoe
flour and the sugar over the berries. Make strips of the rest of the dough and place over the berries. I you feel inspired, form some leaves and berries from the dough and decorate! Bake at 225 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Serve with custard, cream or ice cream.

Our new bedroom at Gåsö are nearly finished.
The Gustavian desk we had in the guestroom in our cottage in Wales (now sold! in favour of Gåsö!), but it looks so much better in the archipelago house! The chair cover was once made for a fair stand I did the styling for in the early nineties! New bed and bedlinen from Ikea. Grey felt cushion that i found in a handicraft shop when I was skiing in Åre this spring! What is missing is the headboard for the bed, probably in grey flanell, we will see?

Tonight I am cooking for my neighbours, will be back tomorrow with recipies and more from our lovely island!

Gåsö livingroom!

A first glimpse of our new house. The open plan kitchen/livingroom has a wonderful open fire at the north end of the house. All built in slate and the floor in Douglas Pine...
A big corner sofa with space for at least 6 people, a wonderful place to sit and admire the fantastic sea view...see you tomorrow
