Norwegian Pirog aka “Troll Snacks”
These savoury pies, made with fillings such as Jarlsberg cheese, ham and other Norwegian regional favourites, are known as “Troll snacks” in and around Gudbrandsdalen, Norway.
The region is recorded in folklore as the setting for the famous folk tale of Per Gynt, who takes on many great adventures, rescues dairy maids from trolls and defeats the giant worm-troll, Bøyg!
It is said that by offering a few of each batch that you bake you will stop unwanted attention from trolls and stop them interfering with your home and family.

Thurs \\ by Atmosfære on Tumblr
Thurs (Thurisaz) - the breaker of resistance. The third rune in Futhark and of Freja’s ætt; Thurs means “Giant” and is the rune of the ás Thor and his hammer Mjöllnir. Thurs governs the unconscious forces of lust and anger, the destruction of enemies, chaos, aggression, male sexuality, and the awakening of will power and prowess. It forewarns physical harm and dishonor, and is used for sexual and agricultural fertilisation as it breaks the hard and barren. The rune is embodied in the fire of renewal and the thundering storms of its namesake, Thor.
