I’m Big on the Pig. And Here are Two Pork Meals That Will Make You A Fan as Well.Appetizers / October 25, 2017
Then, there’s my love of pork. Holy Mother of Hominy. This is food of the gods! For instance, I love pork belly! Chunks of fatty, flavorful meat that if it were sliced thinly would be your morning bacon. But in squares of juicy loveliness they are almost a delicacy. I mean, how did I not know about this from birth?
Pigs, in fact are not indigenous to the US, even though they’ve been around for quite awhile. They were first introduced in the 1500’s to what is now the southeastern U.S. by Spanish Explorer, Hernando DeSoto. I’m not sure the Spanish like the way we assume we “own” the idea of pork. But maybe around a table we could just agree we’ve both made the most of it.
Try this easy appetizer and see if you can’t fill up your table with other folks yearning to get in touch with their Southerness.
