Hey ho everyone!
Today I’ve got another Comfort Food for you! It’s one of the oldest Danish dishes from the middle of the 18th century. There are different types of recipes that are prepared locally – and in its own style and variation.
Both have the two basic elements in the dish are apples and thick slices of streaky pork – which at that time either was preserved by smoking,salting or air-drying, to last for over one year. When the industrialisation period started in the 19th century -and many peasants moved to the bigger cities for work – the “Æbleflæsk” dish followed with the new inhabitants – and slowly the Apple Pork became very popular among them too.
Today the tasty and mouth watering “Æbleflæsk” is turned into a national winter supplement and recipe – that is enjoyed by nearly every Dane at wintertime – especially at Christmas time.
