cracking pork

Wondering how to get perfectly crisp pork crackling every time? It’s not as difficult as you may think. 1. Bring the pork to room temperature before cooking so that it cooks evenly. 2. Score the fat and rub in lots of coarse salt – be really generous. This removes excess moisture and ensures maximum crispiness. There’s no need for oil. 3. Roast at a high temperature for 30–40 minutes, keeping an eye on it to make sure it’s getting good and crispy. 4. Cover with foil, reduce the heat and cook for around 4 hours. 5. Remove the foil and cook for a further hour or so, or until tender and falling apart. sappo.co.za Serving suggestion Cook a pork shoulder as described above. Use the leftovers to make pulled pork tacos or…

the family that eats together

A friend I met up with recently who I haven’t seen in years said to me, “I love that you have a family now. You’ve always been good at family.” That meant a lot to me, especially as my family, the one I chose, not the one I was born into, arrived quite suddenly and I wasn’t entirely prepared. The Salad Dodger has two sons from his first marriage. When we first met they were 13 and 17 and lived in Durban. So I was almost 20 years into my career and starting to wonder if there was a family in my future, when I found myself on a group holiday in Hermanus with the SD and two very hungry teenage boys. I remember my mother and I producing an absurd…

how to make the perfect meatballs, every time

1. PICK THE RIGHT MEAT Beef, lamb and pork usually result in more tender meatballs (a combination of different meats also gives great flavour). Using leaner mince such as chicken? Be careful not to overcook it. And remember: a little duck fat or olive oil goes a long way when you’re frying lean meatballs, keeping them moist. 2. CHEAT A LITTLE Remove sausage meat (pork, lamb, beef or boerewors) from its casing and roll into balls. 3. DON’T OVERWORK THE MIXTURE. No one loves a dense, tough meatball, so work lightly, using your hands, not a spoon, to mix all the ingredients for an airy result. Make sure your hands are slightly damp (or lightly oiled) to prevent the mixture from sticking to your skin. 4. KEEP THEM COLD If you have the…
