Butchery day .blog on a quilting website :)

I sew as kind of my default setting. I have sewn since I was three years old, and it's my chill out as well as a very practical activity.
One of the ladies who writes really good quilting books, Barbara H. Cline, has a blog, and today she wrote about butchering hogs. Mennonite style that is.

I thought some of the pig men might find it interesting

Absolutely brilliant, a family and community get together to sort things out. Everything is supposedly bigger in the States and those 'hogs' were whoppers. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed that.

Thank you
I admit I hummed and hawed about posting it; quilting isn't quite over-the-gate, but most of the folks here are very practical people, and I thought the pig processing was interesting. They didn't waste much, did they ?

Those of you who grow apples for cider might be interested in their apple butter making posts too.

Interesting to see how others do it. Can't say that I fancy the Ponhoss much though!

I don't think my sock and  wedding shawl making wife would agree with you about OTG not being a quilting friendly forum.

The ingredients sound much like their version of haggis, or white pudding tbh.
In the UK we'd just have turned that lot into a pudding bowl, covered it with a cloth and steamed it to make something like a meat loaf.
Apparantly they cut slices off it, like haslett, and fry it.
