  • About

This recipe comes from Elizabeth Luard’s European Peasant Cookery, and makes a delicious salt pork that will keep almost indefinitely. It is much easier than going around trying to find salt pork in a shop. You must use fresh pork belly that has not been frozen, which means that you must buy it from a butcher and not from a supermarket. It is perfect eaten with Lincolnshire Beans (see opposite page).
