Triple D delight!

Triple D (Diners, Drive-ins and Dives) is my friday night must! I even watch it at 5 pm on saturday....I was pleasantly surprised by the Little Depot Diner segment. They make CRETONS!!! Cretons is a Québec speciality. It's a meat spread that I adore. It's made with porc. I was so glad that this reciped made it's way to Peabody, Mass. The only discrepency is that the lady said it was also called head cheese and no way it's head cheese. Head cheese is completely different and it involves actually boiling a pig's head. And we don't usually put it in the food processor, but it's a good idea; it would improve the spreadability. This recipe probably came by boat with the french settlers, I guess it's a version of paté or rillettes. They had to adapt their food because those first few winters were hell!

Here's the clip!



This might make some people (like me) nostalgic....

I'm not with you on this one. My dad loved that stuff on toast.
