Mangalitsa Chef's Hoi Sin Glazed Mangalitsa Belly, Anise-cinnamon Infused Maple Syrup

These recipes are from Mangalitsa Chef.

The first originally came entitled "Hoi Sin Glazed Mangalitsa Pork Belly" -- but then, Mangalitsas are pigs, so there's no need to say "pork", right?

You'll want to make these if you are making his Mangalitsa belly waffles - the belly goes in the waffle, and the syrup on top of it.

We'll be getting photos made of this stuff.
