A Christmassy Friday at Skærtoft Mølle

sm-hus

It turned out that the bakery shop was placed in the same room as the actual bakery, and further more we could have a cup of coffee and a bun or a piece of cake for what is equivalent of 1,5 Sterling Pounds – of course we did that, we didn’t want to miss a thing!

Skærtoft Mølle er egentligt ikke hjemsted for en mølle, som mange ville tro – jeg selv inklusive. Derimod er det en del af gården Skærtoft ved Fynshav på Als, som producerer et bredt spektrum af kornprodukter, som i årenes løb er blevet både tildelt priser samt anderkendelse.
Jeg har længe gerne ville besøge Skærtoft Mølle, da jeg på deres hjemmeside for længe siden havde læst, at der hver fredag 13 – 17 er åbent for brødudsalg. Der bliver bagt brød, til der er udsolgt og ikke mere end det, hvorfor jeg tog min veninde under armen, og vi prompte stod ved butikken 13.15. Jeg skulle ikke nyde noget af ikke at få noget af det gode brød med hjem. Jeg vidste ikke helt, hvad jeg skulle forvente af stedet; om det var en decideret bagerforretning, om det var lækkert eller spartansk, om de havde et stort udvalg eller et småt. Det viste sig imidlertid, at den lille forretning fungerede som bageri, hvor brød, julebrød og boller var linet op foran selve bagerens afdeling. Endvidere kunne man drikke en kop kaffe og få en bolle eller et stykke kage for små 15 kr, så det gjorde vi selvfølgelig – og hyggeligt var det.

Skærtoft is a small-scale organic mill, which produces high quality flour primarily sold in Denmark. The mill (which is actually not a mill) is placed in the South of Denmark on the island of Als. Skærtoft Mølle has through the years gained great recognition from it’s surroundings and won several prices. For quite a long time I have wanted to visit Skærtoft Mølle, given that their little bakery is open every Friday from 1 – 5 PM. I took a dear friend with me and we drove towards the mill, not quite knowing what we could expect from it. It turned out that the bakery shop was placed in the same room as the actual bakery, and further more we could have a cup of coffee and a bun or a piece of cake for what is equivalent of 1,5 Sterling Pounds – of course we did that, we didn’t want to miss a thing!

Valget faldt på en god, gammeldags julebolle med perlesukker på toppen, som blev assisteret af en pille, så jeg kunne tåle laktosen. Risikabelt men ikke desto mindre det hele værd!
There were so many delicious buns to chose from, and we both went with the traditional christmasbun, which is filled with sugar and butter. I had to take one of my tablets due to the fact that I’m lactose intolerant. Quite a risky choice!sm-kloben

This bread is a famous christmas-bread in this region of Denmark. It is a heavy bread filled with raisins, marcipan and loads of delicious christmassy spices. sm-anneksdobbeltbillede-kaffe-og-kage-krans

Omgivelserne ved Skærtoft Mølle er helt vidunderlige. Der kører traktorer rundt med korn til og fra møllen, (mange) mennesker kommer og går for at købe det lækre brød og få en kop kaffe og bagerens vimser rundt i bageriet og bager alt fra brownies til speltbrød. Det er et meget autentisk sted, som jeg bestemt vil have in mente, når det bliver fredag og de igen har åbent.
The surroundings at Skærtoft Mølle are absolutely wonderful; tractors are going back and forth with grains for the mill, people come and go to buy the wonderful bread and the baker himself stands just a few meters from you baking everything from great-looking brownies to tasty bread. I’ll definitely go again when they are open on the Fridays to come. If you’re ever around, please go visit, it’s a authentic and beautiful place.
