DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the pork, onions, and garlic in a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat. Simmer, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, for about one hour.
  • Add the cinnamon, cloves, salt and pepper and continue simmering for about 20-30 minutes more.
  • Add bread crumbs and simmer for about 15 more minutes. (For a spicier mixture, more cinnamon or cloves may be added.).
  • Place a colander in the sink, and pour the creton mixture into it to drain off excess liquid.
  • Place the cooked creton in several small containers (such as empty margarine tubs or small bowls), packing the mixture down tightly.
  • Refrigerate. Serve cold as a spread for French bread or crackers.
