So, I'm probably going to buy half a hog soon. 80-ish pounds of Berkshire hog heaven. I can choose how I want it cut up. I definitely want as many chops as I can get out of it and the ribs of course. I'll probably just get the belly rather than have them cure it into bacon, roasts, bones and offal. Are there any good charts or info about what you can have (half) a hog cut into? And any good recipes for pig heart and kidney? My boyfriend's not a liver fan so I'll probably just chop it up and mix it into some ground pork. Not sure if I can get him to eat the heart or kidneys either, but I may try.
No announcement yet.
