This is a great favourite in all the islands, especially at Christmas time. In the past the pigs were roasted on a spit over a wood fire, a method that is still popular and nowadays is made easier by modern barbecueing equipment. However, many suckling pigs today are cooked in the oven. The method of roasting the pig does not vary materially from island to island, but stuffings do, and so do accompanying sauces, a selection of which are given here.
