pig butchery courses
« on: November 05, 2009, 08:10 »
I, like Graham on Corrie, want to 'learn to butch.'  :D

I wondered if anyone knew of any pig butchery courses, including curing, sausage making etc north of Birmingham.

We are in North Nottinghamshire and the only courses I have found on line are all pretty far south,  We are willing to travel up to a couple of hrs but Devon etc is a bit too far!

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.  :)

Just spent a while watching www legourmet.tv videos. When you find a British instructor they will probably do it differently to the Canadians but still worth a look.

Thanks. These people are about 10 miles away!!!  Brill  :)

The next pig course is tomorrow, can't do tomorrow, taking pigs to slaughter, how ironic.

We have purchased and watched, 'a pig in a day with Hugh and Ray' from River Cottage.  Very informative and has spured us on to try our hand at butchery in the future.  I would recommend this DVD.  :D

And I thought we were a bit out of the way Poppies! What a shame for you.

I am looking forward to trying to string the sausages in 3's.  Looks like an art in itself
