Ok I will! I got my ‘plucks’ (lungs with heart, throat and tongue all attached as one big blob of meat) and my pigs head this morning, so I’m cooking my ‘plucks’ now and am taking photos of the process and will freeze in dog portion size amounts in freezer bags once its done.
[quote author=mugatea link=topic=16424.msg284413#msg284413 date=1338103837] Hi Gracie!
yeah, ruby loved it! I didnt cut anything out. Should I have? [/quote] Don’t know just when I do liver I always cut the string tube things out, not sure if I should, Thanks for sharing the pigs head not sure I could do it it was the cracking the skull and prising the mouth open that put me off :vomit: am sure Gracie would love it tho
Ah….well the tube thing, I think is called the Esophagus, I wouldnt bother cutting it off. Once cooked and cut up it looked and felt like pasta tortiglioni.
Regarding the pig’s skull the butcher had already split the skull and I just had to prize it apart to get all the wholesome goodness of the brains…which were actually quite small considering how intelligent pigs are meant to be. The jaw just comes away as you take off the meat no force needed.
