When it's a ham, of course! As the health benefits of what is being popularized as the "Nordic Diet" receive greater attention, Scandinavians have begun to develop exciting replacements for traditional dishes like skinke, ham. Rutabaga ham (or griljerad kalrot: "roasted rutabagas," in Swedish) is as delicious as it is innovative. Be sure to use a rutabaga (the largest you can find) rather than a turnip - it's the beautiful orange flesh of the rutabaga that completes the culinary illusion..
