So here we are folks, at the fourth and final pick up day for the Rettland Farm Share-A-Swine program.
Our little group has gone through about 400 lbs of Rettland Farm pork in the last 4 months, the equivalent of about 2 whole animals. That's pretty impressive!
So to wrap it up, here is what you'll find in your share bag this month:
Loin/Rib Chops: Eat "High on the Hog" one last time. Maybe sneak them on the grill one of these warm days!
Shoulder Steak: We had this once before in a previous month's share. These do best with slow, low heat. They would be excellent in a stew or braise, or dry rub them and slow cook them on the grill or in the oven. Don't let their shape fool you! They look like a steak, but they need time to tenderize.
Regular Sausage: For any occasion. Simply amazing grilled (are you noticing a pattern here?), served on a bun with mustard and cheese.
Sweet Italian Sausage: Our friend Christine (she of Lard Making Fame) sent out a recipe via email to the group last month using sweet italian sausage. You can find it again here.
Ground Pork: I'd mix this with lean grassfed beef and make some killer burgers...you guessed it...on the grill.
Minute Steaks: Back again, since we love them so. Stir fry, tacos, or cheesesteak. Or whatever novel ways you've come to use them.
Thanks for all your support, Share-A Swiners!
