Re:Pics of Pork Belly with a twist volume 2
I buy Cumberland Gap cured pork belly and it is very good. I was sorta thinking about buying a whole pork belly from a local packing company and curing it myself. I know the basics of curing and I sorta think I could do it. I will let you know. My grandfather from Cumberland Gap TN did it each fall with ham and pork bellies. for some reason his cured ham was never as tough as the hams I buy that are cured. Most are like jerky. His cured hams and bellies were very tender???
I wish I knew how he did it. He has been deceased for about 30 years. He took his secrets of corn liquor and curing meat to the grave. He was a great farmer.
