Cover the pan with the sugar. When it is melted add some butter (30 g) 
and stir. It must be liquid. Lower the heat and add the (small and cold)
boiled potatoes and turn them once in a while. When they are warm and
covered with golden sugar, they are done.

Watch out for the sugar - it's fast at becomming too hard or dark.

Thanks, Michael, I'm going to try this. The idea of regular potatoes with
sugar sounds different, but I bet it's good.

Hot damn!  Another way to eat sugar!

Oh, I forgot to tell what we eat this for (usually):

1. Frikadeller
2. Medisterpølse (somewhat frikadelle "dough" as a sausage, boiled and
refrigerated, or boiled and fried)
3. Pork Rind Roast
4. Grønlangkål + 1,2, or 3.

And of course Red Beets :)

Hi, I have a cooking book (Australian and New Zealand Complete Book Of
Cookery, Mural Books), which has the sugar browned potatoes recipe in the
'foreign' cooking section. As Scandinavian menue it recommends:
Fiskepudding (Fish pudding  with Hollandaise Sauce)
Plommonspackad Flaskkarre (Pork stuffed with prunes)
Sugar browned potatoes and
Maniskkalumi ( Strawberry snow)
Would you consider this to be an acceptable menue?
Regards Stefanie

For this I'd prefer boiled potatoes, it might be good (but isn't
hollandaise sauce sweet enough as it is?).

> Plommonspackad Flaskkarre (Pork stuffed with prunes)

I haven't tried this, but it sounds in the vein of pork roast and duck
stuffed prunes.

A-hva-ba? What's strawberry snow?
This is probably a Finnish thing.

Alan Z. would know about that, I bet.

All the Scandinavian countries do not eat the same thing. The Danes
(fortunately) do not eat lutefisk.
