Some of the best experiences in Nynäshamn are culinary. We´ve selected a few of them.
The Sorundtårtan is a cake made from a secret recipe. It´s a powerful creation and every farm has its own pattern for the top. Don´t be fooled by the bogus recipes available online. You can find the cake at Ösmo plantshop.
Of the dozen or so beer varieties produced by Nynäshamns Ångbryggeri, several have won awards. The names of the varieties are inspired by the archipelago around Nynäshamn. For instance there´s Ålö ale, Bedarö bitter and Indianviken pale ale. The brewery has also supplied beer to the Nobel Nightcap, the unofficial party after the Nobel Prize Dinner. You can book a brewery tour on www.nyab.se.
Nothing smells more “archipelago" than smoked fish. There are two shops in Nynäshamn with excellent selections of smoked fish. At the fishing port, Nynäs Rökeri produces smoked delicacies. And on the road to Torö you have Tottnäs Rökeri, with its smoked goods, and much more.
Nynäshamn has one serious producer of chocolates, truffles and Belgian pralines. Chokladhuset makes world-class Belgian pralines, which it has supplied to the Nobel Nightcap, after the Nobel Prize Dinner.
Handmade sausages from Sorunda korvfabrik are available from Coop Konsum and ICA Maxi. Sorundaringen and Lindqvistare are two delicious local sausages.
At Karlssons köttaffär (butcher) you can buy quality meats, cheeses, eggs etc over the counter. Hung meat and handmade meat products.
At Janes Kryddbod you´ll find a diverse selection of their very own spice blends. As well as spices you can also get lunches to go, jams, mulled wine, mustard and much more. www.janeskryddbod.se
Whether you´re a bear of very little brain (Winnie the Pooh), an extremely kind and strong bear (Bamse, a Swedish storybook character) or a common sweet-tooth, you will love Nynäshamn´s local Herrö honey. It´s available at various food stores and at Rökeriet (a smokehouse).
