"A big favorite of my Swedish-raised husband. This reminds him of his grandma's kitchen every time. Serve hot with butter. These are great as leftovers, sliced and fried, served with a fried egg."

This was a nice side dish. I havent had salt pork since I was a child. I am sure it was in a Swedish potato dish, but different from this one. I think I got a not so ood chunk of salt pork because some of it remained very hard - almost like cartlidge. I liked the flavor, but think I'll made this with bacon next time due to the icky salt pork I got
Linda T, I think I might have the answer to the icky salt pork. Did your salt pork still have the skin/rind attached and did you trim it off or try to dice and cook it? You need to remove that 'skin' and just use the softer part that remains. Then it works great for this dish. (I also fry the salt pork until it is 'almost' a cracklin' before adding the diced onion and finishing it off with a liberal amount of allspice in the mix. I don't put nutmeg in the potatoes. Fantastic!)
