Yummy . . . pork!

We've been buying pork from local farms for years now, and we started cutting it up ourselves after the first one came from the meat cutter with too-thin chops and too much wasted. This sounds like an interesting video. I have the River Cottage Everyday cookbook and that's excellent.

5 or 6 years ago, after watching us haul a half hog onto our kitchen island and cut it up, during a dinner in which we enjoyed that same hog, our young daughter set down her fork, sighed, and said "It's too bad for pigs that they taste so good!"

(Of course, there are a lot more pigs in the world than many less tasty species. It sort of depends on how you measure success.)

mmmm bacon.

Up until now offal has been dog food. We will not be making blood sausage due to our beliefs, but I think we will be venturing into head cheese and pate.

And a tip for those that stun with a gun--thanks to California's lead laws you can now buy lead-free ammo. I much prefer the thought of lead-free head cheese.

That was a great program. It's nice to see that the Brits are reviving their traditional cuisine. And I learned in England they call Headcheese, Brawn.
