Recipe: Pickled Pork and Pease Pudding

Soak the PORK all night in cold water, and wash and scrape it clean. Put it on early in the day, as it will take a long time to boil, and must boil slowly. Skim it frequently. Boil in a separate pot greens or cabbage to eat with it; also parsnips and potatoes.
Pease PUDDING is a frequent accompaniment to pickled PORK, and is very generally liked. To make a small PUDDING, you must have ready a quart of dried split pease, which have been soaked all night in cold water. Tie them in a cloth, (leaving room for them to swell,) and boil them slowly till they are tender. Drain them, and rub them through a cullender or a sieve into a deep dish; season them with pepper and salt, and mix with them an ounce of butter, and two beaten eggs. Beat all well together till thoroughly mixed. Dip a clean cloth in hot water, sprinkle it with flour, and put the PUDDING into it. Tie it up very tightly, leaving a small space between the mixture and the tying, (as the PUDDING will still swell a little,) and boil it an hour longer. Send it to table and eat it with the PORK.

You may make a pease PUDDING in a plain and less delicate way, by simply seasoning the pease with pepper and salt, (having first soaked them well,) tying them in a cloth, and putting them to boil in the same pot with the PORK, taking care to make the string very tight, so that the water may not get in. When all is done, and you turn out the PUDDING, cut it into thick slices and lay it round the PORK.

Pickled PORK is frequently accompanied by dried beans and hominy.

Recipe: To Boil Corned Pork

Take a nice piece of fresh PORK, (the leg is the best,) rub it with salt, and let it lie in the salt two days. Boil it slowly in plenty of water, skimming it well. When the meat is about half done, you may put into the same pot a fine cabbage, washed clean and quartered. The PORK and the cabbage should be thoroughly done, and tender throughout. Send them to table in separate dishes, having drained and squeezed all the water out of the cabbage. Take off the skin of the PORK, and touch the outside at intervals with spots of cayenne pepper. Eat mustard with it.

PORK is never boiled unless corned or salted.

Recipe: To Stew Pork

Take a nice piece of the fillet or leg of fresh PORK; rub it with a little salt, and score the skin. Put it into a pot with sufficient water to cover it, and stew it gently for two hours or more, in proportion to its size. Then put into the same pot a dozen or more sweet potatoes, scraped, split, and cut in pieces. Let the whole stew gently together for an hour and a half, or till all is thoroughly done, skimming it frequently. Serve up all together in a large dish.

This stew will be found very good. For sweet potatoes you may substitute white ones mixed with sliced turnips, or parsnips scraped or split.

Recipe: To Roast A Middling or Spring Piece of Pork

Make a force-meat of grated bread, and minced onion and sage, pepper, salt, and beaten yolk of egg; mix it well, and spread it all over the inside of the PORK. Then roll up the meat, and with a sharp knife score it round in circles, rubbing powdered sage into the cuts. Tie a buttered twine round the roll of meat so as to keep it together in every direction. Put a hook through one end, and ROAST the PORK before a clear brisk fire, moistening the skin occasionally with butter. Or you may bake it in a Dutch oven. It is a good side dish. Thicken the gravy with a little flour, and flavour it with a glass of wine. Have currant jelly to eat with it. It should be delicate young PORK.

Recipe: To Roast a Loin of Pork

Score the skin in narrow strips, and rub it all over with a mixture of powdered sage leaves, pepper and salt. Have ready a force-meat or stuffing of minced onions and sage, mixed with a little grated bread and beaten yolk of egg, and seasoned with pepper and salt. Make deep incisions between the ribs and fill them with this stuffing. Put it on the spit before a clear fire and moisten it with butter or sweet oil, rubbed lightly over it. It will require three hours to ROAST.

Having skimmed the gravy well, thicken it with a little flour, and serve it up in a boat. Have ready some apple-Sauce to eat with the PORK. Also mashed turnips and mashed potatoes.

You may ROAST in the same manner, a shoulder, spare-rib, or chine of PORK; seasoning it with sage and onion.
