Last week, I covered our foray into Nose-To-Tail eating in the purchase of our first whole hog. We left that story with my friend Julie Kelly from Nourish Balance Thrive lending me moral support whilst we tackled the bits of the hog that weren't so common: The head and a huge pile of fat! I have to be honest, I was really squeamish about dealing with the head and seeing parts I could recognize from the cute piglet (okay he was an adult). 

Julie writes up the Part 2 to the story over on her blog Nourish Balance Thrive - go check out the details on our cornucopia of head cheese, luscious broth, home-rendered lard and lardons!
