   "Limpa" is not in the OED.  I have to do something for the Swedes on the list.
   I've been seeing "sun-dried tomatoes" at salad bars and olive bars throughout the city.
   I'll find earlier dates for both.

   Or you might try making a sandwich that is much favored in Sweden--lavish portions of medurst between two well-buttered man-sized pieces of limpa--wholewheat bread with caraway.

   In the Swedish-American shops of the city the customary holiday specialties of the old country run the gamut from salt herring to saffron cofee cake, from vort limpa (an anise-flavored rye bread) to lutfisk (dried cod or haddock or such).
