This was new to me!

Creton is a Quebec thing. My roommates used to smear it on toast for breakfast. In Germany, we used duck or goose fat...

Funny things happen when a person reads YouTube's automatic captions. This was part of the instructions:

"It is also served as a snack on predators as well."

You don't have to buy lean pork, regular should give you enough fat. Or about 2 Tbsp of bacon fat could do the trick.

If when you package it and the fat comes to the top - leave it! It works sort of like the layer of oil on top of pesto. Helps keep it moist and tastes yummy.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I first tasted cretons at a now defunct resto chain in Quebec, Marie Antoinette. They were wonderful. Then I saw them at the grocery store and bought some. Gross, far too fatty. I haven't dared buy them in a store. But, Costco was giving samples, so I knew they were good and made of food. The only preservative is salt. The ones I got are "Paysan" brand of "home style" cretons. I have never tried making them myself. I probably will. I thought it was more effort than implied by that video. Thanks for finding it Aunt Bea.

Sounds yummy to me, I love pâté' so I see no reason not to like this. Easy to make too!

If you don't like the food, have more wine!
