The Wednesday Review:
Reviewing books, products and more
This is a post about meat.
You will see one dead chicken, and if you play the videos,
you will see images from butchery.
If you like fresh, local meat, you may be interested in learning how to butcher one day. Even if you never butcher for yourself, it is useful to understand the process, the various cuts of meat, and how to use the more miscellaneous scraps you may acquire (backfat, pig's feet, et cetera).
I believe that when an animal is respectfully sacrificed for human consumption, every possible shred of the creature should be used, and nothing wasted. To waste anything is to disrespect the sacredness of the creature we are consuming, in my opinion.
