Kate that is a really bad pun!

I'm watching progress in rather horrified silence here, although I do eat the flesh of dead animals, I'm a bit squeamish about handling them.

Am also sitting next to Dave who doesn't eat meat, and trying to hide the pictures from him!!

RE: Boars head (in reply to Pimientito

Just catching up - wow, you did a lot of work while I was sleeping, and the head's in the oven by now.

You're doing an amazing job of keeping us informed, I can't imagine cooking a normal dish and writing at the same time, it's a great service of information and entertainment to the Off-Topic community (although, as Kate said, mu flamenco). Even better than Floyd on Spain.

Pimientito you remind me of an Arabic music concert we went to recently where the qanun-player/leader introduced the singer/drummer saying "He's completely insane.....but beautifool!"

Buen provecho!

RE: Boars head (in reply to Pimientito

So to keep you up to date, I took the head out after 90 minutes (more than 1 glass of wine I hasten to add). It was cooking too fast so I put some bacon strips on it in the first 10 minutes. This is how it looked after 90 minutes

Now to make it crispy. Mix up some English mustard and water in a cup to the consistency of a thick smooth paste

RE: Boars head (in reply to Pimientito

Baste the whole head in mustard and then cover it all in honey. Remove the foil from the ears and put it back in the oven for another 90 minutes. Remove the head every 20 minutes and keep basting with the juices and mix of honey and mustard.
A 5 kg head requires 4o minutes per kilo which makes 200 minute cooking time or 3 hours and 20 minutes.

It would never pop into my head to cook a pigs head, but I take my hat off and bow to the fantastic impulse that got you to do it. Impressive!

Suspense is building. Hope to see it served on the dining table soon.

RE: Boars head (in reply to Ailsa

Its so strange.... right after I wrote that boars head is odd,... I laid down on my sofa watching a TV-broadcast... The issue was... "strange old fashioned german food"... I cant believe that. And guess what they showed?
They ate the meat from a pighead...., fried bugs, Blood-soup and udder-schnitzel... Im shocked... ..... eeeeh... Go on with the boars head... Im silenced by my television..
They said to the blood-soup and the pighead that it was a typical thing at the time before and after the 2nd world war, because they had not much to eat...so they ate everything...

Hmmm...that carving photo is a bit worrying!!!

Well to finish off the thread here is the the finished head now after several bastings and a further 100 minutes in the oven. It should now be a golden brown, crispy and smelling pretty good.

PS : The chances of Harold singing to a roasted Pigs head are less than Zero

I have to take back my words now. Harold did in fact sing "piggies" by the Beatles which was quite appropriate. A never to be repeated photo opportunity here

My dog did. I have a dog who was extremely glad of all the fatty bits. I think she will be eating pigs head for the rest of the week

Excellent and Memorable thread there Pim!!

Great photoshop work by Ed too! It really looks like a passionately dedicated chef!

(There are truly some zany people on this Forum! )

By coincidence I was making roast shoulder of pork around the same time.

Darn sight easier BTW!!

Olé Pim!

cheers,

Ron

WOW!!!
That looks tasty!

I watched the whole weekend 3 seasons of the series "Dexter", and that was the first thing what came to my mind when I saw the boars head.

Recept has been saved, thanks Pim!

Great reportage and photos!

So what are you making for us next week, Pim? We'll all be tuned in!
