In former times,Finland's harsh climate meant that fresh fruit & vegetables were largely unavailable for nine months of the year, causing a heavy reliance on tubers (initially turnip, later potato), dark rye bread and fermented dairy products, occasionally enlivened with preserved fish and meat. Traditionally, very few spices other than salt were available, and fresh herbs like dill were limited to the summer months.
