Suckling pigs are piglets between the ages of 2 and 6 weeks that are
still being fed or "suckled" with their mother's milk. The piglets
are widely known as a culinary delight and can be prepared over open
flame on a roasting spit, grilled or baked in an oven. The small pig
is cooked whole and carved, much like a Thanksgiving turkey.
Exotic Meat Market offers fresh and frozen suckling pig grown in
California. Cooking suckling pig is more than a meal, itís an event
to roast a suckling pig.
Oftentimes the pig is roasted in a wood-burning oven or outdoors,
making it infeasible for most people. Suckling pig has a more
distinct pork flavor than most commercial pork cuts, and the taste
can take some getting used to.
A NOTE ABOUT HOW WE SHIP OUR SUCKLING PIGS: To ensure the freshness
of our Fresh and Frozen Suckling pigs, we pack them with "Blue Ice
for FRESH" and "Dry Ice for FROZEN" and send them NEXT DAY AIR only.
That costs a bit more, but I know you'll agree it's worth it.
