Quoting marlis

es far as I know it is called OLIEBOLLEN,sure Utrecht will tell us the correct spelling.
if the are not greesy I eat one or two.

You are correct Marlis and they where great yesterday. Fresh and of course always a bit of greesy, I had about 8 or so...but it was dinner
For the rest a couple of beers and some champagne of course
Weather: just above zero and dry. Luckily the fog which caused some serious problems on the roads in holland didn't reach Utrecht until way after midnight....so we could actually see our fireworks

I heard Melbourne had 40 degrees...hope that wasn't at midnight Peter and Eric

They are oil balls in English Marlis. :)
Doughnuts with raisins in them.

They're called √Āstarpungar here in Iceland, which basically means loveballs (balls as in testicles(Icelanders are very weird sometimes))

Angela, I dont know about the people in Iceland being wierd but the men sure seem to have wierd testicles.
The ones I made were all bumpy and all spotty because of the raisins.

Not so weird, Angela. In the US the real "loveballs" are known by quite a few names - Rocky Mountain oysters, prairie oysters, sweetbreads and even swingin' sirloin. Usually, the tough "covering" is removed, then they are breaded and deep-fried. In the southern US (mainly the "deep south"), the turkey testicles are included as part of the giblets (neck, liver, heart and gizzard). I think I'd like the Icelandic version better though. (Haven't tried the real version.)

The loveballs are just deepfryed doughballs with raisins in them, but it is an old Icelandic custom to eat rams testicles that have been kept in whey for a few months.. It's extremely disgusting, but still eaten once a year here in Iceland.
