Henningsvaer, Lofoten Islands

Very windy morning spent one of the most exposed parts of the island but still lots to see including the drying of the cod for stock fish. The climate in the Lofoten Islands is suited to this method of drying with strong saline-laden winds and cold temperatures. They are hung between January and April and brought into store in June. We sampled dishes made with this dried fish while here - a bit rubbery compared with fresh fish but very edible.
