This is very similar to my Mom & Memere's recipe. I am making some right now. The only thing is that I buy my ground pork already kind of fatty already. If it looks lean I just don't make any. My Mom has pork butts ground up. So we don't buy seperate pork fat. Anyhow, also we do not add the ground cloves, nutmeg and also a little cinnamon in until the last 10 mins. of cooking. And I have found that if I cook it way to much it has a dried out flavor. Don't confuse the melted fat in there with the water. I kept cooking to try to reduce the "water" before I realized it was liquid fat. Now after 20 or so years making it myself I feel confident that it will come out great. (Nobody ever measured, so I had to experiment.) Also, we add cinnamon. Use one of those electric hand blenders while it cools down a bit in the pan before pouring into containers to cool.
