Cretons Du Québec~

Yes.. yet another recipe for the holidays that incorporates pork for us..
Must be all these snowy wintry beautifullly cozy bake and cook days.. says she 'till Jan 7th:)

These are sooo light and easy compared to the high fat ones..:)
And they are served as an a pate.With crackers..or a fresh baguette..And a side of your favorite imported or home made mustard.

All done in the microwave!

Recipe for you:)
1 lb of lean ground pork
1 medium onion chopped
12 soda crackers.. coarsely crushed.
2 garlic cloves minced
1 cup of milk
Salt and pepper
Pinch of ground cinnamon*
Pinch of ground cloves*
I always put more cinnamon.

Use a microwave safe dish with lid.
Combine all ings. and microwave covered for 15 min..stirring after every 5 mins.
Pack in pretty jars or molds.
Can keep 2 days in refrigerator like this safely.
You can also whirl in the I did this time..for a more uniform consistency.
C'est bon:)

And with the sun shining this afternoon.. they looked much better..but alas it was too late:)They'd been put to rest!
