  4. Prune spread and apple sticks. That's got to be a great flavor match up.

    My wife would love that. I think I'll put that on my list. My store has got

    loin on sale this week. How about a pic tutorial of your trussing method?

    Great job...James

    hey master , i really didn't give  much info on the " cook" i was more interested in learning how to post a pic . as far as the trussing , you like that don't ya , i learned that method from one of my all time favorite chefs , jacques pepin . it's all one piece of twine and pretty easy to do , i bet if you google it you will find it, theres no way i could show how to do it without a video, heck , i just learned how to put a pic up

    nice job on the butterflying & tie. I do something similar at work except I'm basically lazy so jam a butchers steel down the middle & ream me out a hole. Then stuff whole prunes down along with diced apple and some raisins. Looks kinda cool when plated up.

    yo master one more thing , the prune filling may not be the easiest thing to find , i'm hungarian and the hunky name for prune is " lekvar", you might find it by that name , it said it on the jar i bought at publics. if you can't find it i think you could take whole prunes and put them in a cuisenart with a little apple juice to make a nice paste. and as far as the apple sticks , i only cut them like that to make it easier to roll up

    chef willie , i used to do it exactly the same way , stick a steel down the middle and stuff . BUT , you only get the filling in the middle and i really like the pin wheel look when you butterfly it and roll it up, plus you get a taste of the filling in every bite

    Kinda looks like a method of tying we use in the tower business a lot. We call it a "Chain Hitch".

    Is this it?

    thats it bear , there definately is a technique to actually trussing it up and if you can find a video i'm sure it would make it 10x easier to learn ( its all in the wrist )

    Everybody knows how to tie a "half hitch".

    The chain hitch is just a series of continuous half hitches.

    You can make the spacing as narrow or as wide as you want, as you go.

    I couldn't find a video. they only seem to have the trickier ones, like clove hitch, blood knot, etc, etc.

    OK, I'll explain here.

    You said you were Hungarian, and used a Hungarian word (above).

    So I told you in that PM (because I didn't want to bore anyone but you) my best friend, all my life since 10th grade is a Hungarian, and his last name is "Medve".

    My point was that my handle on this forum is "Bear", and I just found out that "Medve" in Hungarian means "Bear".

    Just to add a lil diff to your fantastic prune and apple wedge filling, try apple butter, honey and either apricots or peaches--really gives a great kick.  Also I have used plum jam from wild plum trees, almost the best of both. Thanks for the post, I do enjoy stuffin my meat.  hehe
