Terrine de Porc.



This pork terrine is based on my recent Christmas Turkey stuffing. It was very good with the Turkey, so why not on its own?

It's part sage-n-onion, mostly coarse ground Pork, a handful of chopped Chestnuts, and a central core of mi-cuit Prunes (plus S & P, herbs, and some Port). The whole caboodle is wrapped in smoked bacon.

With 'George' (our wood-fired cooker) having been permanently on the go in recent days, we've been taking advantage to cook pies, bread, and such as the above.

However, the weather has now improved so we may not light up again for a few days; my next experiment will be a Bacon Soda Bread...... Stay tuned!

  5. If I made that it would have black pudding at one end for D. and prunes at the other for me. I love prunes...you've set me thinking about a rabbit loaf I was going to make....

  10. Putting prunes in a stuffing is something I have never heard before. However, now that I have reached senior status, it seems not only good, but practical.

  15. Cro,
    I happened upon your blog after seeing your comment on lloyd khans site. Anybody that finds good there I must have good taste. This is a prime example of why blogs and the internet are so incredible. This country boy from Texas has had the pleasure of visiting you and your life in SW France this Tuesday afternoon all while sipping on my whiskey and tending to my fireplace. Thanks,
    I hope to return for a visit.
