TIL about Blodplättar (pancakes made with blood instead of eggs)

Blodplättar may be fried in a frying pan. The pancakes are usually served with crushed lingonberries or lingonberry jam, sometimes with pork or reindeer meat.
In pancakes, blood operates as a handy egg substitute, chipping in protein and binding the milk and flour together. Unlike egg-based pancakes, however, these flapjacks turn dense, savory, and dark. They’re also packed with iron—which leads to a heartier breakfast while adding a copper flavor.
