National Roast Suckling Pig Day December 18th

November 23, 2010

Pork, the other white meat, is being celebrated in the sense of the suckling pig variations of pork. December 18th is National Roast Suckling Pig Day. Pig roasts have been around for centuries and used commonly among all cultures for large special occasions such as graduation parties. You will also fine many restaurants with large outdoor roasters with roasting up whole pigs for their BBQ’s and various other dishes. Roast suckling pig is quite similar with only a sight variation. “Suckling pig is a piglet fed on its mother’s milk and slaughtered between the ages of two and six weeks. Suckling pig is traditionally cooked whole, often roasted, in various cuisines. It is usually prepared for special occasions and gatherings. The term derives from the word “suckling”, which refers to a young mammal still being suckled. The meat from suckling pig is pale and tender and the cooked skin is crisp and can be used for pork rinds. The texture of the meat can be somewhat gelatinous due to the amount of collagen in a young pig. There are many ancient recipes for suckling pig from Roman and Chinese cuisine.” (Wikipedia)
