7.6 Anatomy of mämmi Occasional crust ("skin") on top Creamy, but not loose texture Consume it plain, or with milk, sugar, cream, ice cream, or a combination of these. (there's not much to say...) [mæmmi] Mämmi is tradition The ultimate Easter dessert in Finland.

In the old times mämmi was kept in a birch bark container (tuokkonen). (Photo: Finnish Agricultural Museum) Today, mass product packages mimic the old design. (Photo: helran.fr) Probably no other traditional food divides opinions as much as mämmi does. THE BASICS Mämmi Studies Surveys Cooking mämmi at home, and sharing the recipe "After two days the room was filled with "stench of mice poo" and some dark fungal infection was apparent, too." http://pap-tasters.blogspot.fi/2013/03/how-to-tame-your-mammi.html by Porridge and Potatoes Practically nobody cooks it at home, as it takes 10-12 hours.

"Mämmi recipe" Mämmi tasting Randomized blind test:
the tasters didn´t know which mämmi they were tasting. " Tasters formed a homogene group:
70% had little experience with mämmi. Image: www.slodive.com 3 products were blind-tested twice to see whether judgement is biased by product order? (failed miserably...) (The least favourite
product) CONCLUSIONS What comes to your mind
when you see mämmi? Pre-test questions Word cloud: Font size is determined by its incidence in taster's answers. Almost everyone knew what mämmi is made of. In general, light colours were aversive light dark same product blöe mass products The scores (average of total = 5.2) showed that mämmi wasn't the taster's favorite, generally speaking;

Regular mass products (+ added sugar!) got the highest points (average of total = 6.6);

Organic, naturally sweetened and gluten-free mämmis were on the bottom.
