Thanks to my Finnish maternal grandmother and her friends, I grew up on this delectable stuff, but, what's with the Christmas thing? We ate pulla all year 'round when I was a kid. Gramma would always have a few loaves in the freezer (it freezes well) for our use, and for when friends would drop in for afternoon coffee. I've made it on several occasions myself, but, even though it CAN be made without cardamom, it just doesn't taste right without it, and cardamom is SO expensive, so, because of that, I haven't made it in quite a while. (The next time I do, though, in addition to loaves, I want to make a few pulla pretzels with any left over dough. The rolls that my Gramma used to make with left over dough are SO boring!) Also, making pulla is pretty much an all-day project, so you have to allow for that. BTW, for those of you who haven't tried it, I'd like to suggest eating pulla toasted. OMG! Toasted pulla is one of THE most DELICIOUS foods you'll EVER put in your mouth! :)
