" the Summer of extremtorka spill over in the winter."
"Of Mandelmanns there will be many extra meatballs on christmas in years."
"– We have received the slaughter of many animals, for we do not have to feed, " says Gustav Mandelmann."
"in the Summer of 2018 will many vacationers remember that the warmest and most glorious in a long time."
"For the Swedish farmers was a pain in the butt. Even Marie and Gustav Mandelmann affected by the long drought and were forced to nödslakta several of the farm animals."
"In the ”Mandelmanns christmas”, broadcast on TV4 on Monday evening, it is, therefore, fewer cows and sheep than usual, which gets its fair share of juläpplen and other julgott that fits a djurmage. "
"It was strange this year was that it was so incredibly good in the garden, but for the animals incredibly hard up," says Gustav Mandelmann to Nöjesbladet."
"Tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots have been particularly flavorful and sweet. Vindruvsskörden have been lush, and hazelnuts and walnuts to christmas and all the rear, there are plenty of. "
" It's amazing, but it can not feed the cows with. We have been the slaughter of many animals, for we do not have to feed. Throughout the summer we had to go and take the trees and give to the cows so they would not starve. The grass dried just away. We have a lot of pastures to sustain us, but we got hardly any rain in the fall either. It meant that we didn't have any winter fodder. It is jättesorgligt."
"Mandelmanns had thus decimate the koskocken and remove all fjolårskalvar, and the slaughter of several sheep. "
"– The, we have got to stop in the freezer and it is jättetråkig. But one must simply cut down. You can't stand there in the middle of winter and not having food to them. It is the jättehemskt. It was a bewildering year."
"Despite the heat, managed to Mandelmanns get good seed, where mature kulturspannmål with deep roots proved to be a stroke of luck during the dry summer. Grisarnas food have not had naggas in the edges in the same way and the farm, ”nöffare” – Gustav call them in ”Mandelmanns christmas” – have been able to remain."
"Now there will be therefore many extra homemade meatballs on christmas. Julskinkan can you take it all the calmer with, think Gustav Mandelmann – and encourages the Swedish people to actually eat meat with a little extra good cheer this christmas."
"– There are many nödslakta beef. Why not cook extra meatballs of the real stuff in years? Maybe ignore the ham in instead. That's really thinking on to buy the Swedish, and as locally produced as possible. Preferably organic too, we think, but what is important is the big picture and to help each other there, " says Gustav Mandelmann and continues:"
"– It is so important with the landscape. You need grazing keeps the landscape open. Otherwise, grow it again with the spruce trees, for example. You don't need to eat so much meat in the mould, but when it is christmas and it is still, so to speak, revels then you can actually help the neighbor and go together, make an effort and pull together. It is important."
"”Mandelmanns christmas” airs Monday at 20.00 on TV4 and TV4 Play."
"Gustav Mandelmann on the odd julfisken..."
"Gustav and Marie Mandelmann moons that everything served on the plate should come from the farm. Fish for christmas dinner is no exception. In the ”Mandelmanns christmas” fish Gustav up an odd julfisk out of the pond together with Marie's brother, Rickard."
"– Here in the Österlen region, it is tradition to eat eel, but it to not take so much of. And the Baltic sea are no good. In the year I came to take a firre from the pond. ”We take our goldfish!” It turned out to be delicious, " says Gustav Mandelmann to Nöjesbladet."
"”the Goldfish” is in fact a carp. Marie was skeptical in the beginning."
"– He has talked about it many times, down in Europe it is a tradition with carp on the christmas table. He joked that he would catch a julkarp, but I thought, well not really at him. On the other, they would not get up for they are quite shy, " she says."
"But Gustav and Richard had the fishing – and caught a colourful masterpiece, with a mountain that shimmered in the orange and red."
" Carp is a jättesmart and miljöbra fish, it has lived in our ponds and grows by itself. Eat a little bit of creep on the bottom and the weeds, " says Gustav Mandelmann."
" I was very surprised that it was so good. They live in the ponds here. You don't think that they would be able to be so good, " says Marie Mandelmann, who filled carp with carrots, onions and root vegetables."
"But if julkarpen become a recurring dish at Mandelmanns christmas dinner, there are divided opinions about."
"it Becomes a tradition now?"
"– Yes, indeed it does, for we have a lot more that would need to be eaten up, " says Gustav Mandelmann."
" No, it's a bit a pity. They are so beautiful. We'll see. You have them always in case of need and it is all well and good, " says Marie Mandelmann."
