Succulent, tender, mouthwateringly delicious whole fresh Suckling Pig: oven ready, head and feet off, minimum 8kg: currently unavailable
Here is a great chance to serve suckling pig again—that deliciously flavoured, succulent, almost melting meat with its crispy skin, roasted to a deep gold. It is one of the best pork roasts you and your guests will ever taste, and roasting it is easy.
They come from Rick Stein food hero Rachel of Alternative Meats and weigh some 8kg, easily serving 10/12 guests for a celebration feast (they are not to be confused with the very small Spanish or European versions).
These whole suckling pigs are delicious when slow roasted, the pre-scored skin producing that crisp, golden crackling, the meat succulent, sweet and tender. And after you have enjoyed the celebration, the pork is also delicious cold the following day.
Whole Suckling Pig, prepared (head and feet off). Length 20in (51cm).
For the whole pig, head and feet on, see separate entry in the Club Larder, code SP02AM01.
