Hardinera (Pork Loaf)

This Hardinera recipe is a modified version of hardinera from Quezon province which is their version of embutido. I think the original hardinera recipe does not have pineapples. Raisins is I think the only dried fruit mixed in this recipe along with the rest of the ingredients below. You can enhance the sweet and sour taste of this recipe by adding more pineapple chunks and a few teaspoons of pineapple syrup.
