I seem to be getting into many heated internet conversations lately (white knighting for P-Chopistan, and defining "Upstate", in the comments of both). Reading both the threads afterwards I had to chuckle at my sort of uncharacteristically harsh and irrational ranting. Must be the change of seasons, I don't fancy myself much of an internet ranter. Perhaps I am experiencing my male lunar period, who knows... Anyways, I guess it could be due to my own adolescent urge to act contrary and engage in count/counterpoint discussions for their own sake.
In any event, I am out in the Midwest for a week (again). So I thought I would share a couple of fall projects that I have started. Pictured above is a nice hunk of pig belly that I have curing away (raw honey, brown sugar, salt). I also just shaved down 4 pounds of organic parsnips with an onion peeler and set them away to lacto-ferment... Hopeful that both projects will be glorious.
