The meat, with fat and skin, from alongside a pig's spine, salted and part-dried, then slashed deeply and the cuts filled with a herb mixture - usually parsley, chopped onions and butter - the whole then rolled up and boiled in muslin. It is cooled and allowed to set, sliced and served as a cold meat sometimes with a sprinkling of vinegar (Hartley 1954, etc).
