serves 1 as a main course

1 pork spleen, trimmed of fat
4 pieces of thick bacon
1 approx. 11-oz container of coconut water

Lay out the trimmed spleen. Place 2 pieces of bacon on it lengthwise. Roll it up and wrap, if desired, in caul fat. Tie it, as shown, stuffing in the bacon so it's completely hidden in the roll of spleen. Put in the bottom of a crock pot. Put 2 slices of bacon over the top. Pour coconut water over. Cook on low all day. Turn crock pot off about a half hour before serving to let it cool slightly and rest. Slice the roll into spirals about 1/4" thick.
