Pork Cheese (an Excellent Breakfast Dish)


  • 2 pounds of cold roast pork
  • pepper and salt to taste
  • 1 dessertspoonful of minced parsley
  • 4 leaves of sage
  • 1 very small bunch of savoury herbs
  • 2 blades of pounded mace
  • a little nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of minced lemon-peel
  • good strong gravy, sufficient to fill the mould


Cut, but do not chop, the pork into fine pieces, and allow 1/4 pound of fat to each pound of lean. Season with pepper and salt; pound well the spices, and chop finely the parsley, sage, herbs, and lemon-peel, and mix the whole nicely together. Put it into a mould, fill up with good strong well-flavoured gravy, and bake rather more than one hour. When cold, turn it out of the mould.

Time: Rather more than 1 hour.

Seasonable from October to March.
