Bath Chaps

Thumbnail of Bath Chaps recipe

Bath chaps—or pig's faces cured as bacon—are much esteemed by some epicures, and are very good substitutes for ham with roast turkey, &c, especially in an economical point of view. When about to dress a bath chap, it should be first soaked in cold water for three or four hours previously to its being boiled for about an hour and a half in water; when done, pull off the rind, shake some brown raspings of bread all over the cheek, dish it up with some kind of green vegetable round it, and serve.
