    “ROAST YOUNG PIG”

    One doesn’t hear much nowadays about roast young pig, but if anyone yearns to know how it was done long ago here is a blow-by-blow description from an old cookbook:

    1 freshly killed month-old dressed pig
    1 big red apple

    Stuffing

    1 cup stale bread crumbs
    1 heaping tablespoon chopped suet
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    1 teaspoon sage
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
    2 tablespoons chopped onion
    1/4 cup cold water

    Mix stuffing thoroughly, stuff the pig, sew up and truss.
    “Place a stone or corncob in his mouth, to keep it open.”
    Rub well with melted butter – all over – dredge lightly with flour, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    Roast in a moderate oven (350°), baste frequently with salted water, then baste with butter.
    In 2 1/2 hours the pig should be roasted.
    If it is large, roast for another 1/2 hour.
    Brush with melted butter to make it glossy, remove the stone and replace with the apple, surround with a wreath of parsley, and serve with applesauce to which 1 tablespoon of horseradish has been added.
