Open it in a private/incognito window to get around the paywall.

I’ve got “connections” into the meat part of my cow college.  My buddy Brian (aka Pig Man) alerted me to when the next hog harvest would start.  I then emailed my friend Barney who cuts the meat asking for four packages of pig necks.

I got fifteen pounds of meaty pig necks for $12 on Thursday.  Friday the pig neck picnic started.

We use the Julia Child recipe for making broth.  We bake the meaty joints for 50 minutes at 450 degrees turning once.  They are baked with roughly chopped celery, carrots and onions.  We then dump the contents into a large stew pot.  Next we add a couple of cups of boiling water from a kettle to the baking pans.  After sitting for a couple of minutes, we scrape the pans with a rigid pancake flipper.  The brown mixture is added to the stewpot.  The solid contents are covered with water.  The pot then simmers happily away for five hours.

Next we pick out all of the solids with tongs.  We do an initial removal of meat free bones and vegetable matter.  The liquids are strained and the sodden veggies are mashed to get the broth.  Fat is mostly separated out with a special measuring cup.  Meaty bone mass is put the fridge overnight as is the broth.  The next morning we do a final fat skim on the broth and freeze in plastic two cup containers.  The meat is handpicked through to remove the cartilage and bones. 

We had so many meaty bones to start with it ended up being a two and a third day process.  We baked and boiled on Friday and Saturday.  Froze broth and meat round one on Saturday morning and completed the second round of broth and meat on Sunday morning (we attend Mass in the evening).

As a result, we have 15 cups of frozen pork scraps and 19 cups of frozen pork broth.  This is used for many things, especially green pork chili and in many bean dishes.  We will use the results for at least 8 dishes all of which will feed us for 2-3 days.

The dog pack goes nuts smelling the baking and boiling pig meat and bones for two days.

The ingredients from this weekend's work will be the basis of 8 or so future dishes.

Oh I wouldn't have the means to do that

And tofu isn't that bad!. The texture takes some getting used to, but it really sucked up the sauce and tastes awesome.I use it instead of pork, trying to cut down on my meat consumption and Thais just chuck ground pork in EVERYTHING
