Pig Share

I know I have talked about getting my 6th of beef - I have gotten three or four now.  And I absolutely love it.  As a matter of fact, I have another 6th of beef on order and it should be here next month.

But today, I picked up my first 1/2 of a pig.  The whole share is 105 lbs. and today I got pork chops - seven huge packages, sausage, pork butt roasts, shoulder roasts, ham hocks, pigs feet (no clue what to do with those!), salt pork and two extra packages of backfat, (with which I'm going to render lard), and also spare ribs and neck bones.  The bacon and the ham is curing and won't be ready for at least another week!   So, I don't have the full share yet!  But as you can see, the freezer is starting to fill up again.  

Pork chops and applesauce for dinner on Sunday night!!!!  I'll let you know how they turn out!
