National Crown Roast of Pork Day

Today we enjoy a meal fit for a king or queen: crown roast of pork. This dish is prepared by putting pork ribs into a circle shape with the rib bones facing upwards, which gives the appearance of a crown. In order to get the ribs into this shape, they may need to be cut a bit, and the bones may need to be slightly cracked. Aluminum foil caps are sometimes put on the tips of the ribs and rib bones so that they don't burn. After cooking, the foil is sometimes replaced with something more decorative. Before cooking, the center part of the crown that is open is often filled with stuffing, potatoes, or other vegetables.
