Pork Brawn

My great granny used to make pork brawn for my mam and her siblings. Pork Brawn is a meat jelly made from pork. The jelly has small pieces of meat in it. The main part of the pig used to make pork brawn is the head. It was a way of using cuts of meat that wouldn’t normally be used. My mam never knew what was inside pork brawn or otherwise she wouldn’t have eaten it!
