on this Pig Earth
A peasant becomes fond of his pig and is glad to salt away its pork.
What is significant, and is so difficult for the urban stranger to understand,
is that the two statements are connected
by an and not by a but.
Adopting pigs, killing pigs, cooking pork. Nothing is new on this pig earth as we go to ladle and spoon on this Pig Blogging Weekend in honor of San Antonio Abate's feast day on January 17th. Join Judy and I in our respective pig earth kitchens this weekend to honor the whole beast and salt away its meat.
