Tonight I am cooking. Roast pork knuckle with roast potatoes and cabbage.
We first had this dish in Prague. The Czech republic.
My version is modified a bit. I omit the caraway seeds, increase the garlic add a bay leaf. Later I add brown sugar.
It was a wonderful Prague Sunday lunch. The sound of the OM PAH band could not be resisted.
The music drew us in. The black larger confirmed we were in the right place.
I am an English bitter drinker but the Czech people make a fantastic beer.
Even my wife, a wine drinker, enjoyed the beer.
It is the custom to tip the band by putting notes into the horn of the Tuba player.
I had never realized how deep a Tuba was.

Today;

My son texted me from Southern Spain, where he lives. 25*C on the beach. Cold beer, olives and fried squid.

My eldest daughter from a coach somewhere in the UK. Away football game for my grandson. Sandwiches! Bless!

My youngest daughter from Lacock. A one table invitation only restaurant in a, “ nice private house” “ Fantastic food” “great company”

However. Boil the knuckles for about an hour. Let cool. Move to a roasting tin. Add some of the stock from the boiling. Add brown sugar.
I cannot remember wether Mick was discussing Brown Sugar or Honky Tonk women, but say two table spoons.
I like my music loud when cooking.
This may have affected the amount of sugar I added.
Then roast for about an hour and a half in a medium oven.
Baste a bit in between tracks.
Increase the heat for the last 30 minutes.
The addition of sugar will blacken the skin.
On a wet cold English Saturday night, Good grub!

However.
Mr G says pork knuckle are a favorite dish in Australia.
As you can see my inspiration comes from many European Countries.
Australia has the edge in Fusion cooking so I am keen for your feed back.
Particularly the use of the BBQ!

PS Current medical advice is that with carefully controlled exposure to rock music I will eventually remember the sixties.

Ah Gosh!
A cyber hug!
A man after my own heart.
Picture this.
Set your Home hot spa to 60*C
Immerse a whole pig.
Cook for four and a half hours. Timing will vary depending on your geographical location.
Mixed human and porcine bathing whilst Sous Vide is not recommended.
Possible problems; Very large plastic bags can be difficult to source.
Vacuum sealing is a two person job.
