North Carolina Chopped Barbecued Pork Recipe
1 1/2 lb pork shoulder roast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/16 tsp cinnamon, ground
3/16 cup vinegar, cider
1/4 cup catsup
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 cup water
1 vinegar, cider, to taste
1 sauce, tabasco, to taste
Brown roast in a small amount of fat and place in a Dutch oven. Mix
the next 9 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over
roast and cover. Bake in a preheated 325^ oven, 40 minutes to the
pound, until done, basting occasionally with drippings.
Transfer roast to a chopping board. Remove meat from the bone and
chop into fairly fine pieces. Season to taste with additional vinegar
and hot sauce. Serve hot with coleslaw and corn bread.
Sylvia's comments: I found some stew pork marked WAY down, bought
several packages ($.99/lb!) and stuck them in the freezer. Then I put
all the ingredients, including the still-frozen pork, in the crockpot
this morning. Tonight it was done, I just mashed up the meat with a
fork and knife and served it over rice. The vinegar produces a very
interesting taste. However, it came out kind of soupy; next time I'll
leave out the water and increase the catsup.
This is the most popular barbecue dish in North Carolina, and, as far
as we know, it is indigenous to that state.

Apple's comments: I made this for supper tonight and it is GOOD!

Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much real proof obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your weight loss regime.
