DESCRIPTION - Pig fat is rendered down to make lard for cooking and spraeding on bread as a snack


Pig Killing January 2007- Velem Hungary - One of the last Pig Killings in the village, already the householders no longer reared the pig as they traditionally did and had bought it to kill. The pig was killed by a vet and its carcass butchered to eventually only leaving a small bucket of scraps unused. The maxim that the only thing left of a butchered pig is its squeak is very true. White and blood sausage, Kobasz, smoked hams, bacon, rendered fat, meat joints for freezing and braun were all produced from the pig in the families yard and workshop. 200 years ago most families in Europe raised pigs for winter pig killings so it was a privilege to be kindly allowed to see how this old traditional way of getting food in winter was performed. There was no cruelty involved with this pig killing.
