There are loads of tasty, hassle-free, dishes you can make with pork mince. Try pork and apple burgers, quick and easy meatballs or old-fashioned meatloaf. But, if you really want to surprise your family, knock up some Chinese dumplings or Thai-style pork balls.
And don't forget that traditional, authentic, spaghetti Bolognese always calls for a mix of beef and pork mince... with plenty of added vegetables.
Delivered in a plain plastic catering bag.
Expect some natural discolouration of any mince that's been in contact with the air. And a bit of liquid to collect at the bottom of the bag.
Portion this out and freeze anything that you're not going to cook within a couple of days.
Like all meat, once it's in contact with the air it will lose it's colour a bit. Because there's air in the bag the quicker you unpack and freeze it the more it'll retain it's colour.
Remember, you have to be especially careful with mince.
That's because, once minced, there's a larger surface in contact with the air. And air carries bacteria.
That's also why it's never a good idea to eat mince that hasn't been fully cooked.
Refrigerate, covered, for no longer than 2 days. Any mince left uncooked and at at room temperature for more than 2 hours should be binned.
