I am still trying to get this pig that we had butchered where it can be eated without don't like his...he is a cutie without them...Anyway back to the pig...I tried marinateing it and cooking it slow in a gravy..Yesterday baked a ham in a slow oven several hours covered..That pig was still tough...I cooked some of yesterdays ham in pinto beans tonight and made some Mexican cornbread to go with it...It was good...Very tender...
Did I get "took" buying this pig??? What do I look for and ask next time...Think I am going to try and raise some next year...real popular with they will buy me out and I will go deeper into the country...
The Jerseys are all fine as of this point in time...Finished up antibotics yesterday for pneumonia...
We finished chored early and are actully in the house before dark...Hubby got a full tummy and is asleep in his chair...
Our barn is a leaking on the hay and he has been trying to tar it where it will quit...Any suggestions concerning the leaks???
Fern, I was telling the vet about you and he a "shorthorn" fellow him self...Said he use to show them and win prizes...I ask him if they really had shorthorns and he just laughed...Guess they don't???

I think you was taken when you got that pig. My suggestion. Get it from me. Our pork is never tough. Other wise ask to try some of last years before you commit to buying a pig. If they are a good salesman they should give you a package of meat to try.

Good luck

Tough pork? Take a lesson from Chinese cooking class and cut thin before stir frying, then simmer about 10 minutes at least. I use lime juice as marinade before cooking. Leaking roof? what kind of roof- wood shingle? metal? to protect hay short term use a plastic tarp on top, long term is fix roof. Metal roofs often patched and coated with mobile home roof sealer. Shorthorns? Used to milk a short horn, shorter as compared to a longhorn, or a 1/2 jersey. RN.

It's a tin roof...Needs a new one but tin has got so expensive here...trying to wait for a deal...I thought about a tarp but the mood he has been in I have just avoided the subject...Will try the lime juice and tell him about the sealer...Thanks...KAtG
