4 SERVINGS

K lb. minced pork

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to moderate 350 F (Gas Mark 4, 180 C).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, bacon or gammon, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, allspice and parsley. Using your hands, mix and knead the ingredients until they are well combined. Shape the mixture into 12 balls. Place the balls, in one layer, in a large baking dish. Set aside.

Reduce the heat to low and stir in the cornflour mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened slightly.

Remove the pan from the heat and pour the sauce over the meatballs.

Put the meatballs in the oven and bake them for 2 hours, basting occasionally with the sauce.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and serve immediately, from the dish.
