Norwegian Casserole with Lightly Salted Pork / Gryte med Lettsaltet Flesk
A classic casserole dish found in “Gryteretter” (Casseroles)published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979
In the old days before refrigerator and freezers became common, there were four ways one could get meat and fish and keep for a long time. Smoking, drying, curing and salting. When salting, meat and fish were put in strong salt brine in barrels and when used it had to be rinsed in to remove most of the salty taste.
