Re: not so sure about this weeks selection
Agreed. Looking at Souse it looks a lot like dog food. And considering two of the ingredients (pigs ears, trotter) are actually treats we used to buy for our dog just makes it seem worse.
The Scrapple however looks quite edible (once it's been fried) I have but one question.
Step 1: Boil the pork in 4-5l of water with laurel leaves, cloves, salt and pepper. But you don't list laurel leaves in the ingredients (unless it's another name for bay leaves)
And if Laurel leaves are another name for bay, then why later do you say add polenta and herbs? Why not just polenta and the sage?
And an additional ending bit. Just because I dont want to much up if I try this (tempted to) when you say 2.5l of strained broth. Would it be best to pour in all the strained broth and let it reduce to 2.5l for a stronger taste? Or just pour in what's needed.
