Æbleskivers in New York Magazine!

In skivers, Sphere of Skiver Spotlight on December 10, 2009 at 2:40 pm

Look familiar? If you've visited Aunt Else's Æbleskiver booth at the Mill City Farmers Market it will.

I received an email a few months back from chef Shannon Wilkinson (former producer of Top Chef) while she was in the process of opening a new restaurant called Henry Public, in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of  Brookly, NY. Shannon was including æbleskiver, a childhood family favorite, on Henry Public’s menu and was in search of an aebleskiver pan that would work well in her restaurant’s busy kitchen.

Aunt Else's 9-Hole Cast Iron Æbleskiver Pan NOW available on

I’m so excited that our 9-hole æbleskiver pan is almost ready! When I say “our”, I mean Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver’s new pan. I absolutely love the fact that we’ve been able to keep the work local, and so proud that each pan is marked “MADE IN MINNESOTA, USA”.

I wasn’t scheduled to work this weekend at our booth at the Mill City Farmer’s Market, so naturally, we decided to take the entire family down to the Market to enjoy the craic. We missed the goats and rooster, but the kids still loved the Market and danced to the live music (they say that they were shaking their booty’s). It’s getting harder to get pictures of them. They knew I was trying to get a picture of them eating an æbleskiver (above), so Big Brother shoved the whole thing is in his mouth! I don’t know where he gets the stubborn attitude??? (You can see Terri & Brent working away in the Aunt Else’s Æbleskiver booth)
