Suckling Pigs are a European favourite, also featuring prominently in Spanish and French butchery. Ours are primarily sourced from Yorkshire reared Old Spots, as well as other heritage breeds, for the best meat quality, to offer very tender pork. They are then carefully prepared, removing the offal, and for the easy carve option most of the bones by hand, before being tied.
A visually stunning centrepiece for special occasions and perfect for slow roasting. The key is to make sure the pig is well salted before cooking. Try stuffing the belly with aromatic vegetables to infuse the meat with extra aroma and flavour and serve with rich, buttery Granny Smith apple sauce to compliment the succulent meat.
