    Mille®'s Note:

    In country households until the turn of the nineteenth century or even later, the pig was 'the gentleman that pays the rent' and was a very prized possession. He met his end in the autumn when the main part of the pork would have been pickled or turned into hams to see the family through the winter, but a few dishes for fresh pork survive and this is one of them.

      This recipe was delightful! Very old world tasting, my husband refused to believe that apples and onion went together but this proved him wrong.
