Bake Mete Ryalle

Recipe by Daniel Myers

This simple recipe is perfect for using up leftover cooked pork. It has a flavor and aroma that is more than a bit like glazed ham.


2 lbs. pork
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. mace
2 tsp. cubebs
2 Tbsp. sugar
4 Tbsp. butter


Boil or slow-cook the pork until tender. Allow to cool and then chop into small pieces. Add spices and sugar, put into pie crust, dot with butter, cover with a top crust, and bake at 350°F until golden brown - about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
