Cooking with Skrama

Share on Facebook Share on Facebook

Skrama is one sharp piece of metal and the flagship of our Terävä brand. While some might think that it's not optimal for cooking, and they might be right, we wanted to try it out. If you're brave enough, you might do the same and share your results with #cookingwithskrama hashtag!

Light up the fire!

Sampo's Tin-foil Aubergines

Sometimes you'll want your edibles cut into smaller pieces before cooking them. Skrama does that surprisingly well! Here we have an example of Sampo's tin-foil aubergines on campfire:

Step 1: Drink some beer, gather up all you need, prepare yourself, and drink some beer. Here's what you need.

  • Tin-foil
  • Aubergine
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Beer
Chopping the eggplant.

Step 2: Cut the aubergine in half and carve a small furrow in the middle. Skrama is very Terävä (that's sharp in Finnish), so watch your fingers! Have some beer.

Chopping the garlic.

Step 3: Peel and cut the garlic cloves into large pieces. I used single clove garlic and cut them in half. I must remind you that Skrama is really very Terävä. You might think that I'm trying to get you to follow that link, and you would be correct to assume so. Before (or after) that, have some more beer.

Step 4: Optional: Cut your finger and season your food with blood. Place the aubergine halves on the tin-foil white part facing up, sprinkle salt on it, place the garlic pieces on it, place big chunks of butter on it, and wrap the foil around the whole thing. Drink beer.

Once you have the tin-foil bundles wrapped up, throw them into the fire. You might want to raise them over the fire or next to the fire. The insides will turn into delicious soft mush over time. Have some beer and patch up the finger you just cut open.

Santeri's Campfire Tribal Feast

Santeri decided to go full tribal and get naked. Alcohol might have something to do with it. Anyway, while he did have a Terävä Skrama with him, he mostly just waved it around and pointed things with it. It was only later that he realised that he could use it to open up his charred food.

A naked man by the fire with a copping board full of whole onions and potatoes on his lap.

Step 1: Get nekkid, point things with your Terävä Skrama and gather up your resources. Here's what you need.

  • Potatoes
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • A chunk of meat
  • Seasoning spices for meat

Step 2: Remember to hydrate yourself, preferably with beer. Your naked body will dry up easily. Ok, so here comes the easy part. Just throw all the vegetables into the fire! Don't be shy!

Step 3: Now show that piece of meat some love and rub those spices all over it. Yah, just like that. Keep on going. Once the meat is ready, toss it into the fire. Drink beer and stare at the flames. Once in a while, turn the food around with your Skrama.

Step 4: Once your food looks like self-willed subjects of Queen Daenerys (looking like a piece of coal), you may move them a bit further from the fire. On the side or over it so that they will keep on cooking without turning into ash.

Step 5: Ok, so now you have some tasty black food that's ready done inside-out. Use your Terävä Skrama to open up these beauties and get to the insides. Don't eat the black parts. They taste like shite and have carsinogens and stuff.

BONUS Step 6: While drinking beer and waiting for the food to cook, you might have developed from a savage beast into a well-mannered connoisseur and wish to turn this tribal food into something more sophisticated. A stew! For this you will need these:

  • A pot
  • Cream
  • Beer
  • Cheese (any melting cheese will do. Cream cheese or processed ones work very well!)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

BONUS Step 7: Carve the insides of the vegetables into the pot. Remove the black parts from the meat and chop it into smaller pieces with your Skrama and toss the meat into the pot. Add the cream, beer, and cheese into the pot too. Put the pot over on the fireplace and start stewing.

The cream and cheese will soften the scorched taste in the ingredients and mellow it down to a rich flavour. We totally recommend this! Add salt and pepper if you like.
