This time of the year Heffanutt has to rely on his food storage to feed Ant King and himself through winter.

Stockfish is usually cod, dried on “hjell” – wooden racks outdoors. The fish is dried by cold air and wind. This is a really old preservation method since “the beginning of time”. Stockfish has a storage life of several years.  This product accounted for most of Norway’s trade income from the Vikings age throughout the Medieval period.
