A Crackling Easter!

With Easter arriving later this week and the school holidays in full swing, make sure that family time is on the agenda for the weekend ahead. There’s nothing quite like sitting around the table, enjoying proper food and fantastic conversation before adventuring on Easter egg hunts & delving into chocolate! For your Easter Sunday Roast, trust your local butcher to provide you with the best local meat.

Roast Pork makes a delicious Sunday Roast, one which is often overlooked. It’s perfect with a good quality Apple Sauce and a sprig of Rosemary from the garden. For superb crackling, make sure you score the skin with a sharp knife; this will help the fat to escape during the cooking process, but don’t cut all the way into the meat. Pat the skin dry and then rub with salt before cooking. Don’t forget to rest the meat for 10-15 minutes before carving!

If you’re keeping the family celebrations going into the Bank Holiday, for Easter Monday buffets we have fantastic finger food like scotch eggs, sausage rolls, cured meats and of course, our famous pork pies. Appleton’s is open as usual throughout Easter week including Good Friday & Saturday, before closing for Easter Sunday & Easter Monday. Opening hours return to normal from April 7th. Come and visit us in both Ripon and Wetherby, have a crackling Easter!
