Well folks, I’m back after a long silence. Sorry. There just wasn’t anything homestead related going on.
Last week, my father and husband killed their pigs, and today Joe butchered half of ours. We received a wonderful link to a video on pig butchery from a friend, and dad and Joe have been playing it every time they butcher. It has made for a much better understanding for them on what they are doing.
Joe divided up the cuts of meat
I packaged them.
Joe started the curing of the bacon
I ground the meat up for sausage and future meat pies!
