Pig Head

Tara Firma Farms had a special on pig head for $5, for that price I could not pass it up. I just had to wait till the wife was away to prepare, she wanted nothing to do with it.

After some thought I decided to debone the head. Watched a couple youtube clips on the procedure and gave it a try. 1st hair removal. Farm did a decent job but there were still a few strays, out comes the torch.

The 1st cut

Saving the tongue for later

Coming 'round the top

This was the toughest spot, getting the snout to release

Complete! Not as hard as I thought it would be. Wanted to get the brain out but no cleaver to crack the skull.

Into the stock pot for some bone broth

Next post I'll talk about roasting prep and broth seasoning
