Lolland, another of our destinations is one more of the Danish islands and located in the Baltic Sea. Lolland is only 480 square miles in size, and it is the fourth largest island in the Danish archipelago. You find forests and marshy coastlines. The region is protected with dikes and dunes. We saw crops growing in the fields and stopped to check out what was growing and discovered this fertile growing land supports a thriving sugar-beet industry.
We are finding the produce to have superb flavor, likely because the growing soil seems to be so rich. One of our favorite meals to cook again and again is potatoes and this recipe is simple and always delicious.
To leave Lolland we travelled by car and ferry to the Island of Fyn. The crossing was about 45 minutes and it was a cool overcast day.
