Fresh Pork!

This is exciting for me! Seeing the cuts of meat starting to come together! The cuts still need to be wrapped in freezer paper & chilled, but this is the point where a butcher can begin dreaming of delicious meals! (Kroger, however, had a scary week as someone kept buying out their freezer paper as soon as they restocked!) In this photo, there are two lovely pork shanks on the left in the tub. This is the part just above the ankle. These are wonderful when they are slow-cooked in a crock pot. To the right are several boneless roasts that I trimmed from the shoulders. I particularly enjoying cooking these in the oven. Pork is a delicious meat for adding a variety of flavors!
