Pork

I picked up half a pig from Kristian today, and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

They got the butcher to wrap it all up in freezer paper. I got 16 pork chops, 4 racks of ribs, 2 large pieces of fresh pork belly, 2 jowls, 2 hocks, 1 or 2 loin roasts, several shoulder roasts, a cut up ham, and sausage. I asked to get some lard rendered, but I forgot to ask about it when I picked up the pork.

I'm planning on curing the belly and jowls this week. And eating the rest over the next 6 months or so. My parents have donated part of their chest freezer for me to use.
