Year of the PIG

Year of the Pig
The year of the pig has begun. The pig, twelfth sign of the Chinese Zodiac (fun loving pig came in last in the river race that determined the assignment of years), symbolizes fortune, fertility and happiness. And, truly, it is hard not to feel fortunate and happy when pork crepinettes are browning in your pan!
At the Fatted Calf we work with many great heritage breeds of hogs (all pasture raised!) and as the new year is upon us we would like to take a moment to celebrate the amazing animals that provide us with bacon, ham, sausage and so much more. The Berkshire is a constant presence in our kitchen and a mighty pig it is. Its dark flesh and creamy fat are perfectly suited to slowly cooked delights such as our pork confit. The Tamworth is our top pick for sausage making with its mellow flavor and near perfect meat to fat ratio. The Duroc is a tender hog with exquisite loins that make for delightful smoked pork chops. The famous Red Wattle is meaty and flavorful, producing streaky bacon and proper hams. We appreciate all of the pigs that we have the honor of preparing in our kitchen with their many unique qualities and we know you will too.

Picked up a two pack of bone-in pork butts totaling 12lbs today. Plan on smoking them on Saturday for some pulled pork!
