Huckleberries Online

Name that food

Norwegian Food
Norwegian Food

So, if you've been around Huck's Online long enough you know I refer to Christmas Eve as the Festival of Strange Norwegian Meat. Each year we spend Christmas Eve at my in-laws. My father-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law are first generation Norwegian immigrants. So I've learned to embrace the taste of the Norske.

No lefse this year :-( And we NEVER have lutefisk. The Norwegians' tastebuds have become somewhat domesticated. 

The foods pictured are: potatoes,  Norwegian sauerkraut  (surkaal), medisterkaker (pork patties) with ligonberry sauce, Medisterpoelse (pork sausages), rutabega, ribbe (pork belly).  Not pictured: pinnekjott (salted, dried lamb ribs).

Good times.
