Milagros’s Famous Pernil al Horno

The flavor that this seasoning blend, called adobo, imparts into the pork roast is absolutely incredible. This is Milagros's famous pork roast recipe that family always requests when visiting her. It is especially popular during the holiday season and can make a great alternative to cured ham if you're looking for something new and exciting. Scale the recipe up to accommodate a whole shoulder roast or fresh ham and start a new tradition!

The word tembleque means "wiggly" or "wobbly" and it is the perfect name for this creamy pudding. This dish is naturally dairy-free, thanks to the coconut milk base, although it is traditionally made with cornstarch as the thickener. For a lower-carb, Paleo-friendly option, gelatin works wonderfully to set this pudding. Other starches do not produce the pudding-like texture that cornstarch does, and in fact, tests using tapioca starch were what led to my developing the cheese recipe on page 170!
