If wrestling pigs qualifies you as an expert on all things pork, then Libbie Summers makes the grade. This Missouri girl has written an amazing book on how to cook just about every part of the animal.
Summers book, The Whole Hog Cookbook: Chops, Loin, Shoulder, Bacon, and All That Good Stuff is a roadmap to anything you could possibly want to make from a hog.
We’re talking about everything from how to cure your own bacon to grinding that perfect sausage that your guests will be talking about into next weekend.
Of course, you can also expect information on cooking the usual cuts of pork and some lessons on how to prep it for cooking. If you’re looking for the whole hog, as the name suggests, this is it.
