“Creamy textured white beans blended with bits of seasoned pork make this a savory pate. Serve it as a hearty first course to spread on crusty bread or to scoop upon crisp vegetables. The recipe was taken from "Sunset Magazine". Preparation time is the time it takes to slice carrot, celery, and onion.”
