    First stab at feral carnitas

    Yep..it was a sow, but a largish one (didn't weight it, but it was big). This is my irst real attempt to see if its edible

    Using this recipe:
    Stovetop Pork Carnitas | theclothesmakethegirl

    Except, feral pig instead of store bought...wish me luck
    I don't believe in fairy tales, sermons, or stories about money....but thank you kindly for the cigarette.

    Yeah...it came out well in the end.

    I screwed it up at first by over thinking it. The recipe used store bought pork..and I was worried that the wild pork would be too tough, so I used a little extra lime juice, thinking that the acid would tenderize it.


    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LIME!!!

    The texture was fine, in fact a little dried out (also, I suspect from overdoing the lime), and the lime flavor was overpowering.

    So....a day or two later, I sliced the large chunks into fajita size strips, threw them in a skillet with a whole onion cut radially, and a half a stick of butter........came out wonderfully! Sautéed some red and green peppers with corn and a single thinly sliced habanero....add sour cream and some warm tortillas...some of the best tacos I've ever had, and certainly the best I've ever made!

    I will do this recipe again soon, except I will stick to the recipe, and update you guys again!

    The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. -- Edward L.
