Countdown to Christmas 16: Pork Stuffing

Pork Stuffing

Using chopped vegetables, meat, herbs and spices to stuff a chicken, rabbit or other meats is an ancient tradition going back to the 4th century. The word ‘stuffing’ didn’t appear in print until 1538. Before this date it was often referred to in cookery books as ‘farce’. During the 19 century its popularity increased. However the Victorians disliked the term ‘stuffing’ regarding it as impolite and crass. They much preferred  ‘dressing’ instead!
