Sometimes it’s fun to try old-fashioned recipes for the holidays. This is one from the 1900s. I haven’t tried it but I bet it is delicious.
GRILLED SALT PORK
Take quite thin slices of the thick part of side pork, of a clear white, and thinly streaked with lean; hold one on a toasting fork before a brisk fire to grill; have at hand a dish of cold water, in which immerse it frequently while cooking, to remove the superfluous fat and render it more delicate. Put each slice as cooked in a warm covered pan; when all are done, serve hot.
