DIRECTIONS

  • Trim excess fat off pork and discard (unless you have dogs, and then it's a treat for them). Put meat in a 4-5 quart pan with six cups of water, sage, pepper, salt and nutmeg. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer until meat pulls easily into shreds (about two hours). Lift out meat and let cool.
  • Finely chop meat and return to broth. Stir remaining two cups of water into cornmeal and buckwheat flour, then mix with meat. Bring mixture to a boil and stir until thick (about 30 minutes).
  • Spoon into a 4" x 8" loaf pan; cover and chill overnight until firm.
  • Turn loaf out of pan and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Arrange slices in 1/8-inch melted butter in a frying pan on medium high heat. Using a wide spatula, turn as needed until crusty and browned.
