Method of Preparation

Cut pickled pork into 1-inch cubes—make up white sauce—cook sweetbreads as per basic method—chop capers—grind peppercorns—chop parsley.

Method of Cookery

  1. Stir sweetbreads into sauce.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes at a “Rotorua mud pool bubble”!
  3. Add pickled pork, capers, and seasoning—heat.
  4. Lastly add chopped parsley and serve.


Serve in a nest of plain Boiled Rice—add 1 ounce blanched sliced almonds—with a good tossed Red and Green Cabbage Salad. Beer is best in my opinion.
