Winter Food and House Warming
Nothing warms the house better in winter than a pork butt cooked slowly in a low oven. The one above cooked for five hours at 300 degrees after spending the previous twenty-four hours in a a rub of salt, brown sugar and pepper. It's definitely winter food because it warms the house slowly and thoroughly and has the added benefit of perfuming the air in the house. It also builds a huge appetite.
A too large portion was consumed for dinner with roasted carrots and a salad and a sauce of white wine, peaches, pork stock, vinegar and sugar all cooked down to a pourable thickness. There are leftovers and pork will be on the menu for the next several days.
