  • Diabetes News

    I have just arrived from a visit at EASD 2017 held in Lisbon, Portugal. EASD stands for European Association for the Study of Diabetes and is the biggest fair within Diabetes in Europe. All the latest research and technology within Diabetes is presented. This is my short report from two intensive days.

    Not so many new insulin pumps were presented, but I was curious to know more about the small colorful pump from Kaleido with a very short tubing. It is a cool pump and the colors are wonderful but it takes time before we can see it on the market. Kaleido have had starting problems when testing the pump on T1D´s. A new version is now on test but there are still problems that needs to be solved. I guess it will still take some time until  it is available on the market.



    I was invited to EASD by Roche Diabetes Meetup and we were 60  diabetes advocates from different part of the world. We spent a day together talking about news in the diabetes world. We had the opportunity to listen to Ilka Gdanietz meindiabetesblog.com and Scott Johnson scottdiabetes.com presenting the news at Mysugr, the App that makes diabetes suck less. Here you can get help, support and advices to manage your diabetes.

    This is me on the Blogger event:

    Josefin Palmén (blog here, FB here) from Sweden is here showing her CGM Eversense to Renza Diabetes Advocate (blog here ) from Australia and Kelly Close Founder of Close Concerns and Diatribe from US (really recommend you to check these links to get updated, great news and tips within diabetes).

    At EASD I participated in the #DeDoc event and it was fantastic to meet Adam Brown, the author of the book “Bright Spots and Landmines”. It is possible to download free or to buy cheap at Amazon.com. Everyone loves his book. It is really inspiring to read about how Adam manage his diabetes. I got his book and I love it. Adam got our book “We can want and dare and we have diabetes type 1“.

    I also met this guy who has a diabetes Magazine on the web, but has now decided to launch it as a paper magazine. It will be launched November 14th.

    In the mornings we started the day with exercise and after 1,5 hours run in Lisboa we felt ready to meet the exhibition. My blood sugar is perfect when I start without eating before I have my slow long run. Thorulf however, needed to stop at a café and eat a croiassant and a cup of coffee. Josefin brings her insulinpump in AnnaPS sport bra and I run in the tank top with pockets.

    At EASD I had the chance to meet Cajsa Lindberg, the President of the Swedish Diabetes Youth Association .

    I really would like to share this organization run by Delphine T1D who loves to travel and now arranging travels by T1D for T1D with you. Here you can travel together with people really understand your special needs and can support if you need. Would you like to travel with T1Ds and the Diabetes Tour agency,you can read more here,

    In the end I would like to share a photo of all Diabetics participating in the #Diabetesmeetup. It is so inspiring to meet all these T1D working so hard to support others with diabetes and arise the awareness of diabetes in the world.

  • Secure your insulin!

    (see Swedish text below)

    Never ever bad insulin again!

    This new product, MedAngel, is a sensor you keep with your insulin to monitor the temperature, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Find the sensor here.

    This fantastic new product will help us to secure the quality of the insulin. Just buy the sensor here and install the APP (both for IOS and Android devices). With the APP installed, simply connect to the sensor and you are ready to monitor the temperature of your insulin, securing the correct temperature for your insulin at all times.

    Did you know how much the blood sugar level deviate because of insulin not being kept in the correct temperature? People using MedAngel are witnessing, they can keep a much more stable blood sugar levels, when keeping control of the insulin temperature.
    I am using it and I am surprised how much it helps. Perfect product developed by diabetics for diabetics!

    Why is a MedAngel needed?

    Did you know that insulin should be stored at temperatures of 2-8 degrees Celsius in order not to lose its effectiveness? A common cause of not stable blood sugar is that the insulin is damaged when stored at the wrong temperature. A very common cause of poor insulin quality is that insulin is stored in a refrigerator (as it should), but that the temperature in the fridge is sometimes less than zero degrees (and frozen) without you knowing it. With MedAngel, you ensure that your insulin does not freeze in your refrigerator without your knowledge. A tip is to keep the insulin in the middle of the refrigerator in a sealed box with a MedAngel sensor inside it.

    Important to know about insulin and temperature:

    When insulin is frozen, it is crystallized and the quality is affected or even totally destroyed. When insulin is stored at temperatures above 9 degrees Celsius, the protein start loosing its structure. The higher the temperature and the longer the heat, the faster this process continues. The effectiveness of the insulin is then decreasing. It is important to protect your insulin from freezing and from heat. Many have been helped by MedAngel and we feel that this really helps us with diabetes.

    Facts about MedAngel:

    • MedAngel ONE is the perfect for your medications. It’s easy-to-use, compact, and connects to your smartphone, allowing you to store and transport your medications at the right temperature.
    • Waterproof design – MedAngel ONE can be used in refrigerators and in medical coolbags.
    • Built-in medications database – Select your medications from the list of approved EU and US medications like: Insulins, Humira, Multiple Sclerosis-Medications, Hormones, Epoetine, EpiPen many more
    • Smart Alerts – Every time the temperature approaches or exceeds the safe levels you get intuitive alerts and notifications.
    • Comprehensive history – Check if your medications were properly stored the previous days in timeline view

    Read what other says: 
    I ordered this in order to make sure my son’s insulin was being stored at the safe recommend temperature. We have to carry his emergency glucagon on us and insulin in case we need it. We live in Texas so it’s always hot. We carry his glucagon and insulin in a frio bag. I love that I can drop the MedAngel One in the frio bag with insulin and be able to check to make sure the frio is keeping my son’s insulin at the safe temperature. This device has given me a great peace of mind in regards to my son’s insulin. It allows me to constantly check on the insulin and the temperature it’s being stored at.

    One more story:
    LOVE THIS PRODUCT! One of those products you don’t know you need till it becomes available. Getting ready to order another one for my son who is off at college. Set it up and then noticed my son’s insulin for his type 1 diabetes could be in a better place in the fridge. The little alerts are great. Love that this product will help with traveling with insulin. Something so small could make a big difference. With the cost of insulin, it super important to treat it like liquid gold and preserve it to ensure efficacy of the product. Insulin is a life saving drug and spoiled insulin could be deadly.

    Swedish text:

    Denna nya produkt, MedAngel, är en sensor som vaktar temperaturen på ditt insulin 24 timmar per dag, 7 dagar i veckan. Den säkrar att du vet och märker om temperaturen är för hög eller för låg för att kvaliteten på ditt insulin fortfarande är ok. Du köper en sensor (här hittar du sensorn) som du placerar vid ditt insulin, förslagsvis i kylskåpet och tillsammans med ditt insulin eller tex när du reser med ditt insulin i kylväska. Med sensorn medföljer instruktioner hur du laddar ner den App som finns på App Store vilken används för att läsa av temperatur, få aviseringar, samt se historik. App finns för både Android samt IOS. När du laddat ner Appen så ansluter du sensorn till din telefon via Bluetooth. Du kan ansluta flera sensorer till samma App.

    Varför behövs en MedAngel?
    Visste du att insulin skall förvaras mellan 2-8 grader för att inte förlora sin effektivitet? En vanlig orsak till svängigt blodsocker är att insulinet har försämrats av förvaring i felaktig temperatur. En mycket vanlig orsak till  sämre kvalitet på insulinet är att insulin förvaras i kylskåp (vilket det skall) och att temperaturen i kylskåpet ibland understiger 0 grader, utan att man vet om detta. Med MedAngel så säkerställer du att ditt insulin inte fryser i ditt kylskåp utan din vetskap. Tipset är att förvara insulinet mitt i kylskåpet i en försluten burk med en MedAngel sensor inuti burken.

    Viktigt att veta om insulin och temperaturer:

    När insulin fryser så kristalliseras detta. När insulin förvaras i temperaturer över 9 grader så förlorar proteinet sin struktur, ju högre temperatur och ju längre tid i värme desto snabbare sker denna process. Vid båda dessa händelser förstörs ditt insulin gradvis eller helt. Det är mycket viktigt att skydda sitt insulin från att frysas och för direkt solljus.

    Många har blivit hjälpta av MedAngel och vi känner att denna verkligen hjälper oss med diabetes.

    Kort fakta om MedAngel:

    • MedAngel ONE är en perfekt vakt för ditt insulin. Den är lätt att använda, liten och ansluts till din mobil (smartphone). Hjälper dig att säkerställa att ditt insulin förvaras och transporteras i rätt temperatur. 
    • Vattentålig – MedAngel ONE kan användas i kylskåp och i din kylväska till ditt insulin.
    • Innehåller en databas med alla insulinsorter godkända av EU och USA. Fungerar även för godkända läkemedel för MS, Humira, hormoner, Epoetine, Epiken och många fler. Du väljer enkelt din medicin från databasen.
    • Smarta påminnelser, varje gång temperaturen når eller överstiger säkerhetsgränser så får du en påminnelse eller ett alarm via din mobil.
    • Visar historiken – du kan enkelt se flera dagar tillbaka i vilken temperatur ditt insulin har lagrats.

  • What is DIABETES MODY?

    (For Swedish text please read below)

    The research about diabetes is important and here are some facts from one of the research institutes in Sweden, the University in Lund. They explain a form of Diabetes called MODY that differ some from both Diabetes type1 and type2. Learn more:

    MODY (Maturity Onset Diabetes in Young) is a collective name for multiple forms of hereditary diabetes. So far, six different MODY types have been discovered and the common cause for them is that the genetic cause of the disease is known.

    All forms of diabetes have hereditary elements, but for example for type 1 and type 2 diabetes, there are several genes in combination with environmental factors behind. At MODY the error is in a single gene.

    MODY is the strongest hereditary diabetic disease, which means that it occurs for several generations in the same family. A child with a parent with MODY has 50 percent risk of suffering from it. Chance determines which children will and who will not inherit the recombination. It is also common that there are other types of diabetes at the same time.

    In general, MODY debuts before the age of 25 and the disease can best be described as a form of type 2 diabetes in young people.

    A common feature of MODY is the lack of insulin that causes blood glucose levels to be too high. However, patients have no real insulin resistance, which is common in type 2 diabetes. MODY, on the other hand, is characterized by high insulin sensitivity, which increases the risk of low blood sugar levels when patients are treated with insulin or pills that enhance insulin production.

    Nor are other typical metabolic disorders, such as obesity, blood fatigue or hypertension common. Complications from the major blood vessels in the form of cardiovascular disease are rare.

    Since most MODY patients are young and normal-weighted, it is not uncommon for them to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. With MODY, there are no antibodies to the insulin-producing cells, so it is not, as with type 1 diabetes or LADA, an autoimmune disease.

    Despite the similarities between the different MODY forms, such as insulin deficiency, they also have important features depending on the gene mutation behind. MODY 1 and MODY 3, the most common form in Sweden with almost half of all MODY patients, requires treatment, often with insulin injections. Pretty moderate increases in blood sugar levels lead to an increased risk of diabetic complications in the form of eye and kidney damage.

    MODY 2, on the other hand, is mild and complications are rare. The disease requires no treatment. The genus mutation that causes MODY 2 was discovered 30 years ago. The gene controls the transport of glucose from the blood into the insulin-producing beta cells. This is a signal to the beta cells to release insulin to the blood. At MODY 2, the signal is weakened, which causes too little insulin to be released and blood sugar rises above normal levels. MODY 4, 5 and 6 are unusual. In addition, there are probably still unknown MODY forms, as approximately 20 percent of patients have no known gene mutations.

    The research on MODY has led to important insights of how different genes participate in the regulation of the body’s sugar and energy balance. This knowledge contribute to a better understanding of the mechanisms behind other forms of diabetes.

    Up to five percent of all forms of diabetes belongs to any of the MODY modes.

    Forskningen inom diabetes går framåt och är viktig. Här kommer intressant rapport från Lunds universitet, som förklarar vad diabetesformen MODY är.

    MODY (Maturity Onset Diabetes in Young) är ett samlingsnamn för flera former av ärftlig diabetes. Hittills är sex olika MODY-typer upptäckta och det gemensamma för dem är att den genetiska orsaken till sjukdomen är känd.

    Alla former av diabetes har ärftliga inslag men vid till exempel typ 1 och typ 2 diabetes är det flera gener i kombination med faktorer i miljön som ligger bakom. Vid MODY sitter felet i en enda gen.

    Hälften av barnen insjuknar

    MODY är den starkast ärftliga diabetessjukdomen vilket innebär att den förekommer i flera generationer i samma familj. Ett barn till en förälder med MODY har 50 procents risk att drabbas. Slumpen avgör vilka barn som ska och vilka som inte ska ärva genkombinationen. Det är inte heller ovanligt att det samtidigt finns andra diabetesformer i familjen.

    Liknar typ 2 diabetes

    I regel debuterar MODY före 25-årsålder och sjukdomarna kan bäst beskrivas som en form av typ 2 diabetes hos unga.

    Ett gemensamt drag för MODY-formerna är bristen på insulin som gör att blodsockerhalten blir för hög. Däremot har patienterna inte någon uttalad insulinresistens, vilket är vanligt vid typ 2 diabetes. MODY karaktäriseras tvärtom av hög insulinkänslighet vilket ökar risken för alltför djupa blodsockerfall när patienterna behandlas med insulin eller tabletter som driver på insulinproduktionen.

    Risk för felaktig diagnos

    Inte heller andra typiska störningar i ämnesomsättningen, till exempel övervikt, blodfettsrubbningar eller högt blodtryck, hör till bilden. Komplikationer från de stora blodkärlen i form av hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar är sällsynta

    Eftersom de flesta MODY-patienter är unga och normalviktiga är det inte ovanligt att de får diagnosen typ 1 diabetes. Vid MODY finns det inga antikroppar mot de insulinproducerande cellerna, det är alltså inte, som vid typ 1 diabetes eller LADA, en autoimmun sjukdom.

    Avgörande skillnader

    Trots likheterna mellan de olika MODY-formerna, exempelvis insulinbristen, har de också viktiga särdrag beroende på vilken genmutation som ligger bakom.

    MODY 1 och MODY 3, den i Sverige vanligaste formen med nästan hälften av alla MODY-patienter, kräver behandling, ofta med insulininjektioner. Ganska måttliga förhöjningar av blodsockerhalten leder till en ökad risk för diabeteskomplikationer i form av ögon- och njurskador.

    MODY 2 däremot är lindrig och komplikationer är sällsynta. Sjukdomen kräver ingen behandling.

    Försvagad signal

    Genmutationen som orsakar MODY 2 upptäcktes för 30 år sedan. Genen reglerar transporten av glukos från blodet in i de insulinproducerande betacellerna. Detta är en signal till betacellerna att frisätta insulin ut till blodet. Vid MODY 2 är signalen försvagad vilket gör att för liten mängd insulin frisätts och blodsockret stiger över normala nivåer.

    MODY 4, 5 och 6 är ovanliga. Dessutom finns det förmodligen fortfarande okända MODY-former då ungefär 20 procent av patienterna inte har någon av de kända genmutationerna.

    Nya kunskaper

    Forskningen om MODY har lett till viktiga insikter i hur olika gener deltar i regleringen av kroppens socker- och energibalans. Dessa kunskaper bidrar till en bättre förståelse av mekanismerna bakom också andra diabetesformer.

    Högst fem procent av alla diabetes tillhör någon av de olika MODY-formerna.

  • Tip during skiing and cold weather


    AnnaPS ambassador Robin Bruntesson professional XC-skiier is carrying his insulinpump in AnnaPS briefs with pockets when skiing.

    Swedish text please see below

    The Winter time is lovely, but as an insulin dependent diabetic this could also mean trouble. Mostly because of three things: the cold, activity several hours and many days in a row and your insulin sensitivity and burning of energy increase at the same time. 

    Winter vacation filled with winter activities outdoors is wonderful and fantastic for those with diabetes, you don’t want to miss it. Being a diabetic doing winter activities in the ski slopes and going cross country skiing requires some planning. We spend a lot of time outdoors in cold weather and therefore we would like to take the opportunity to share our tips about how to manage diabetes in the cold, in a safe and smooth way.

    Go to the tip here

    Go and shop what you need here.

    Have a really nice time outdoor!

    Swedish text :

    Vintersemester som sportlov är härligt, men som insulinbehandlad diabetiker kan den också innebära krångel. Främst av tre anledningar: kylan, aktivitet många timmar i sträck och flera dagar i rad och att förbränningen och insulinkänslighet ökar.

    Vintersemester  med långa sköna dagar fyllda av vinteraktiviteter utomhus är underbart och fantastiskt bra för dig med diabetes, det vill man inte missa. Att vara diabetiker och ha sportlov i skidbackar och längdspår kräver en del planering. Vi tillbringar mycket tid utomhus i kyla och tänkte därför passa på att dela med oss av våra tips för att hantera diabetes i kyla på ett smidigt och bra sätt.

  • Receipt from Chefabetic – Haddock, broccoli & beans


    Haddock, broccoli & beans, 4 people (for Swedish please see below)

     We are heading towards darker and colder times (it shows when trying to photograph in ”daylight”). I like to work with different colors when I cook. Often I have a vision of how the dish will look long before it ends up on a plate. This time I wanted to work with the color green, which gives this dish a nice autumn feeling. First I wanted to make this dish all vegetarian, but then I found this fantastic haddock and could not resist. This is how I whink you should look at cooking – be open-minded and let the food decide.

     Low temperature haddock

    600 g fillet of haddock

    5 dl water

    50 g salt

    butter for the tray

    Preheat the oven to 125°C/257°F. Mix the salt with water and let the fish salt in the brine for 20 minutes. This will result that the fish becomes firmer and that the salt penetrates the meat. Cut the fish in four portions of 150 grams each. Place the fish in a greased ovenproof tray, cover with plastic wrap and bake the fish until it reaches an internal temperature of 45°C/113°F, about 20 minutes.

    Fried broccoli

    2 pieces of broccoli

    rapeseed oil for frying


    Cut the croccoli into rough pieces. Do not discard the stem, it will be used later. Heat a frying pan and fry the broccoli thoroughly over high heat until nice color. Be careful as the oil tends to splash. Finish with seasalt.

    Butter blanched vegetables

    100 g cabbage or kale

    250 g edamame beans (frozen works just great!)

    stems from the broccoli

    Wash and tear down the cabbage or kale into small pieces. Peel the broccoli stems and slice thinly with a mandoline or a sharp knife. Boil well-salted water in a skillet and add a hefty dollop of butter. Cook the vegetables just before serving. Broccoli stems and beans need about 30 seconds while cabbage or kale only needs a few seconds. This is called blanching.

     Dill oil

    100 g dill

    200 g rapeseed oil

    Heat the oil to 70°C/158°F. Mix dill and the hot oil in a powerful blender until completely mixed, 7-8 minutes. The reason that you heat up the oil is to extract as much chlorophyll as possible out of the dill. Strain slowly through coffee filter for the best result. Cool and store in refrigerator.


    White wine sauce with dill oil

    2 small shallots

    ½ small fennel

    2 bay leaves

    1 large sprig fresh thyme

    rapeseed oil for frying

    3 dl dry white wine

    4 dl fish broth

    4 dl cream


    dill oil (see recipe above)

    Fry the vegetables, bay leaves and thyme in rapeseed oil on low heat until softened, about two minutes. Add the wine and let reduce until half the liquid remains. Pour in the fish broth and reduce further, until about 3 dl of liquid remains. Add the cream and reduce until the sauce thickens itself. Strain and season with salt. Pour in a few drops of dill oil and stir carefully just before serving.

    Recept från Chefabetic:

    Kolja, broccoli & bönor, 4 personer

    Vi går mot mörkare och kallare tider (det märks om inte annat när man försöker fotografera i ”dagsljus”). Jag tycker väldigt mycket om att arbeta med olika färger när jag lagar mat. Ofta har jag en vision om hur rätten ska se ut långt innan den hamnar på tallriken. Den här gången ville jag arbeta med gröna råvaror som jag tycker ger den här rätten en skön höstig känsla. Detta var först tänkt som en vegetarisk rätt i en helt annan utformning, men när jag snubblade förbi en fantastisk kolja valde jag att tänka om. Det är såhär jag tycker att man ska se på matlagning – var öppensinnad och låt råvarorna bestämma.


    Lågtempererad kolja

    600 g koljafilé

    5 dl vatten

    50 g salt

    smör till formen


    Sätt ugnen på 125°. Blanda ut saltet i vattnet och låt fisken rimmas i 20 minuter. Detta gör att fisken blir fastare och att saltet tränger in i köttet. Portionera fisken i fyra portioner a 150 g. Lägg fisken i en smord ugnssäker form, täck med plastfilm och baka fisken tills den når en innertemperatur av 45°, ca 20 minuter.


    Råstekt broccoli

    2 st broccoli

    rapsolja till stekning



    Ansa och skär ned broccolin i grova bitar. Släng inte stammen, den ska användas senare. Hetta upp en stekpanna och stek broccolin ordentligt på hög värme tills den tagit fin färg. Var försiktig då det tenderar att skvätta en del. Avsluta med flingsalt.


    Smörblancherade grönsaker

    100 g kål, förslagsvis svartkål, savoykål eller grönkål

    250 g edamamebönor (frysta funkar alldeles utmärkt!)

    stjälkarna från broccolin


    Ansa, tvätta och riv ned kålen till mindre bitar. Skala broccolistjälken och skiva den tunt med en mandolin eller en vass kniv. Koka upp väl saltat vatten i en kastrull (vattnet ska smaka som en kallsup!) och tillsätt en rejäl klick smör. Doppa ned grönsakerna precis för servering. Broccolistammen och bönorna behöver ca 30 sekunder medan kålen endast behöver några sekunder. Detta kallas för att blanchera.



    100 g dill

    200 g neutral olja


    Hetta upp olja i en kastrull till 70°. Mixa dill och den varma oljan i en kraftfull mixer tills helt söndermixat, 7-8 minuter. Anledningen till att man hettar upp oljan är för att utvinna så mycket klorofyll som möjligt ur dillen. Låt oljan långsamt droppa av i kaffefilter för bästa resultat. Kyl ned och förvara i kylskåp.


    Spräckt vitvinssås

    2 små schalottenlökar

    ½ liten fänkål

    2 lagerblad

    1 stor kvist färsk timjan

    rapsolja till stekning

    3 dl torrt vitt vin

    4 dl fiskbuljong

    4 dl vispgrädde


    dillolja (se recept ovan)


    Fräs grönsaker, lagerblad och timjan i rapsolja på svag värme tills de mjuknat, ca två minuter. Tillsätt vin och låt reducera tills ca hälften av vätskan återstår. Häll i fiskbuljong och låt koka ned ytterligare, tills ca tre dl vätska återstår. Tillsätt vispgrädde och reducera tills såsen tjocknat av sig själv. Sila och smaka av med salt. Droppa i några droppar dillolja och rör försiktigt om precis före servering.

  • New Chefabetic Fine dining: Pumpkin, cabbage & cod

    (For text in Swedish please see below)
    When I almost half a year ago got my diagnosis, type 1 diabetes, I didn’t knew anyone with the condition. Therefore I arranged a “Diabetics Dinner”, only a month after my diagnosis, where I invited four unknown people with diabetes to my home. (One of these also happened to be Sophia who then worked for AnnaPS).
    This is an updated version of one of the dishes I served for this particular dinner. At first glance it may seem time consuming but remember that both the chicken broth and the baked pumpkin runs itself on the stove and in the oven.
    Find more recipes from Chefabetic on this page.

    4 Persons

    Baked pumpkin

    1 big butternut pumpkin

    cold pressed rapeseed oil


    Preheat the oven to 175°. Cut off the ends of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Drizzle with rapeseed oil, season with salt and bake the pumpkin in an ovenproof tray with the skin side up until it is completely soft, about 60 minutes depending on size. Let cool slightly before peeling the pumpkin with a knife and then break it into rustic pieces.

    Pumpkin puree

    half of the baked pumpkin

    lemon juice


    Mix the pumpkin in a mixer. Season with lemon juice and salt. Reheat on low heat to avoid burning the puree.

    Blanched black cabbage

    300 g black cabbage



    Gently pull the cabbage leaves from the stems. Break down into smaller pieces and wash properly. Fill a large pot with water. Add butter and salt the water properly. Bring to the boil. Dip the cabbage just before serving for about 30 seconds. This is called blanching.

    Pan fried cod fillet

    600 g cod fillet with skin

    rapeseed oil



    Portion the fish into four equal pieces, 150 grams. Heat a frying pan. Salt the fish and fry it with the skin side down over medium heat until nice color, about two minutes. Turn the fish and fry for another 1-2 minutes until the fish is properly cooked. I usually start frying in rapeseed oil, since the oil can withstand higher heat and towards the end I add a dab of butter for the good taste.

    Buttered chicken broth

    1 kg chicken wings

    1 onion

    1 carrot

    1 bay leaf

    5 thyme twigs


    apple cider vinegar

    Rinse the chicken thoroughly under running water. Place the wings in a pot together with vegetables and herbs and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 3 hours without a lid. Skim the surface once in a while. Strain the broth and reduce until about half remain. Add a big dab of butter in 2 dl reduced chicken broth just before serving and season with vinegar. Mix together with a hand blender.

    Arranging the dish 

    I serve this dish with fried mushrooms (I used oyster mushrooms), roasted pumpkin seeds and parsley. If you don’t have the time to cook your own broth, it works as good with the one you can buy at supermarkets. Though no, it does not. Try to boil your own, and you will notice the difference.

    In Swedish:

    När jag för snart ett halvår sedan fick min diagnos, typ 1-diabetes, kände jag ingen med sjukdomen. Därför anordnade jag redan efter en månad som konstaterad diabetiker en ”Diabetics Dinner” där jag bjöd in fyra okända personer med diabetes till mitt hem. (En av dessa råkade dessutom vara Sofia som då arbetade för AnnaPS).
    Detta är en uppdaterad version på en av rätterna jag bjöd på under just denna middag. Vid en första anblick kan den verka tidkrävande men kom då ihåg att såväl kycklingbuljongen som den bakade pumpan sköter sig själv på spisen, respektive i ugnen.

    Recept för 4 personer 

    Bakad pumpa

    1 lite större butternutpumpa

    kallpressad rapsolja


    Sätt ugnen på 175°. Skär bort ändarna på pumpan, klyv den längs med i mitten och gröp ur kärnorna med en sked. Droppa över rapsolja, salta och baka pumpan i en ugnssäker form med skalsidan upp till den är helt mjuk, ca 60 minuter beroende på storlek. Låt svalna något innan du skalar pumpan med hjälp av en kniv och därefter bryter den till rustika bitar.


    hälften av den bakade pumpan



    Mixa pumpan ordentligt i en hushållsmixer. Smaka av med citronsaft och salt. Värm upp på låg temperatur under ständig omrörning då purén lätt bränner vid.   

    Blancherad svartkål

    300 g svartkål



    Ansa kålen genom att försiktigt dra bladen från stjälkarna. Bryt ned i mindre bitar och tvätta kålen ordentligt. Fyll en rymlig kastrull med vatten. Tillsätt en rejäl klick smör och salta vattnet ordentligt. Låt koka upp. Doppa svartkålen precis före servering i ca 30 sekunder. Detta kallas för att blanchera.  

    Stekt torskfilé

    600 g torskfilé med skinn




    Portionera fisken till fyra lika stora bitar a 150 gram. Hetta upp en stekpanna. Salta fisken och stek den med skinnsidan nedåt på medelhög värme tills den fått en fin stekyta, ca 2 minuter. Vänd fisken och stek ytterligare 1-2 minuter tills fisken är färdig. Jag brukar först steka i rapsolja då oljan tål högre värme och mot slutet tillsätta en klick smör för den goda smakens skull. 

    Smörad kycklingbuljong

    1 kg kycklingvingar

    1 gul lök

    1 morot

    1 lagerblad

    5 kvistar timjan



    Skölj kycklingen ordentligt under rinnande vatten. Placera vingarna i en kastrull tillsammans med grönsaker och kryddor, täck med vatten. Koka upp och låt sjuda 3 timmar utan lock. Skumma av ytan med jämna mellanrum men rör inte runt i kastrullen, då blir fonden lätt grumlig. Sila av fonden och reducera tills cirka hälften återstår. Tillsätt en rejäl klick smör i 2 dl reducerad kycklingbuljong precis före servering och smaka av med vinäger. Mixa ihop såsen med en stavmixer.  


    Jag serverar den här rätten med nystekt svamp (jag använde ostronskivling), krossade pumpafrön och hackad kruspersilja. Har du inte tid att koka din egen fond funkar det nästan lika bra med köpt. Fast nej, det gör det inte. Testa att koka egen så märker du skillnaden.
