We introduce the Swedish crayfish party!  Swedish crayfish party!

Crayfish Party is usually held in a calm late summer evening. Families and friends gather around the table set outdoors with bright red crayfish, bread, cheese, shrimps and various pies.

And as the sun sets slowly, candles are lit and paper lanterns glow in the increasing darkness. Everyone wears paper hats and bibs, singing merry songs to accompany the snaps.

In the early 1800s, lakes in Sweden were full of crayfish. High-class restaurants in Europe imported a lot of Swedish crayfish, which were very popular as an exotic delicacy at the that time. But once they faced with extinction due to over-fishing, the catching season was limited to August and September.

This is why crayfish parties are traditionally held in Sweden in August, the opening of the fishing season.

Crayfish populate both lakes, streams and oceans and are caught in Sweden since many centuries. There are different species with only small differences in appearance. The body is made up of segments of protecting shell and is commonly 10-20 cm in length. Its impressive claws are used both for hunting and for self-defence. But when opening a pack of KRÄFTOR (frozen crayfish in dill brine), there is no need to worry. Frozen crayfish do not pinch!
