Real Pork

Post-workout breakfast this morning: Melo Farms french-cut pork chop. Free-range eggs, also from Melo. Topped with a bunch of fresh-grown sweet peppers and chopped scallions. I post this because I have an article coming up on the government’s “other white meat.” A nasty, despicable, industrial product that I cannot stomach. This is the best pork chop I have ever had in my life, and that includes eating Melo chops for almost two years. It must have been the French cut?

    On Dr, Nichael Eades’ blog a while back, he writes about having taken a trip somewhere to a Mangalitsa pig farm where they participated in slaughter and eating of a mangalitsa pig. I believe the meat from that animal was more red than white. I think it depends on the breed of pig too. What’s available to me here in Lancaster, California is pork thta is liht pink in color before cooking.

    Wade – it was pouring outside, so I just threw it in a pan on the stove instead of my usual Weber.

    Hey Karen, can you share some recipes with us?  I’m looking for some make-ahead meals that I can have ready for the week.

    Thank you Karen! It’s amazing what pure breed, free range, field pastured pork does for both the life, health and hapiness of these awesome pigs and our own.

    If we ever get to the point where we can afford to buy pastured meats and eggs, I will buy them. For now I make do with what’s available at supermarkets and the warehouse stores, and I read food ads religiously. We supposedly have a farmers’ market here in this town, but I’ve not been there yet. We’re anticipating moving to Northern ARizona, and I believe I will be able to buy at least some of our meats from local producers, also goats’ milk, vegetables, cheese, and eggs.
