Winter Pig

We buy our winter pork from a local farmer. It is already butchered and cut in half when we pick it up. Here are some pictures to show how we processed the meat.

My Hubby cuts the meat into sections and lays it out before he slices it into steaks, stew meat, roasts and meat for grinding. We place the meat and some fat scraps in a large bowel for making ground pork and sausages for later in the process.

Once everything has been cut, some of the meat is packaged up and frozen directly. Other cuts of meat are placed on a cookie sheets to be frozen individually. That way we have steaks that are individually frozen in large bags that can be pulled out according to how many people that we are cooking for.

This picture was our first attempt to make sausage in years. I had just found a used food processor with all the accessories at a second hand store. I had been wanting one for years. This was the first time trying out the meat grinder to make ground pork and sausages. Before finding the food processor we used an old hand grinder which took forever. We used “Old Plantation Pork Sausage Seasoning” for our sausage and we were very pleased with the results.

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
