Do you eat ethically?
Just a little more souse....pleaseee
I am sure that most of you would probably give me a turn up nose of the thought of eating a "Pickle Pig" as a side platter.
But....Pickled Pig is not so bad after all if it called "SOUSE", and you must have a serving of sweet potato pudding with it. Also, never forget the addition of a slice breadfruit as an edible complement to your plate.
That is the closest you can ever come to being Bajan.
Here a simple souse recipe for those who want to raise the blue, yellow and black flag
* A young pigs head and 4 trotters or 3 lbs. meaty pork
* 4 large limes , squeezed
* Salt to taste
* 1 medium onion, chopped very fine
* 1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped fine
* 1 hot pepper, deseeded and chopped
Wash and clean pork very well. Place in a large saucepan of boiling water and simmer until tender.
Remove the meat from the saucepan and plunge into cold water.When cool, remove and cut into bit sized pieces. Skin and cut the pig tongue into lengthway slices and cut trotters in half.
Put the pork into a bowl and make a brine with the lime juice, water and salt to taste. (About 2 cups of brine)
Mix this with the onion, cucumber and pepper, then pour over the meat.
Cover and chill in the refrigerator for several hours before serving.
Garnish with parsley.
BON APPETIT !!!
