Norwegian Pork Rib “Sylte” / Ribbesylte

A Classic Norwegian Christmas sandwich spread and
buffet accessory found on

“Sylte” is a classic Norwegian Christmas sandwich spread that many still make at home. It can be made from pork ribs like in this recipe or from the meat in the pig’s head. The last was a tradition in my childhood home and my sister and I thought the big pig’s head my mother brought home was both fascinating and gross. On the other hand, we had nothing against the finished product. And “sylte” is still one of the things I’m looking forward to when it’s getting close to Christmas.

“Sylte” is  usually eaten on wholemeal bread topped with either strong, sweet, Scandinavian  mustards or pickled beetroots or wrapped in lefse with the same accessories.
