My grandmother emigrated from Sweden in the late 1920s. I have HER mother's recipe. Swedes do not use corn syrup, they use molasses. Americans use corn syrup. Oranges were not common in ordinary Swedish homes in the early 19th century, so skip the orange ingredients. Cut into pig shapes? Must be another American custom. Hearts, stars, ruffle-edged rounds, fir trees, sometimes reindeer are traditional shapes, but especially hearts and stars. And making a small hole off-center to permit hanging on a ribbon on the tree is very traditional.
