Peasant food. One-pot meal. Comfort food. Root mash with ham hock. A traditional Swedish dish and quite a common meal in the Swedish-speaking part of Finland, as well. We used to serve it at the Viking Centre, where I worked during my teen summers. For me, this dish is a piece of home, really.
Peel and chop 600 g rutabaga or swede, 600 g floury potatoes, 400 g carrots and 200 g yellow onions and place in a big pot. Add 300 g brined and smoked ham hock (or another pork part). Cover with water, taste with salt and let simmer for a couple of hours until everything is tender. Remove the pork and excess water. Mash coarsely. Cut the meat. Serve with mild mustard.
