  • Suckling Pig

    I am planning to roast my first Suckling Pig...10-12 kilos... oven one meter wide. I am doing it for my 84 year old mother, who remembers the suckling pigs of her youth, when she was a refugee in Spain..... the one thing she is dreaming about is crispy skin .... no pressure!
    Can anyone give me advice about: length of time in the oven, starting at what temperature, and any tricks and tips would be so gratefully accepted.
    I have had my oven a few months, it is heavily insulated, retains heat incredibly if very hot in the first place... Thank you to any who reads this, or replies... keen cook....

    Hello

    Look at these threads:

    You will see 'Search' in the darkly shaded bar in the first block under the header above. These are from a search, using 'roast pig' as the search term.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
