This is Where Bacon Comes From

This little piggy went wee, wee, wee, wee, wee all the way to our stomachs

This little piggy went wee, wee, wee, wee, wee all the way to our stomachs.

And pork chops, and pork tenderloin, and ribs, and pulled pork, and…well you get the point. For our conscientious lesson of the day, it’s important to understand where your food comes from and to do your best to use sustainable practices when buying and cooking. Do you need to buy macrobiotic turnips that were fertilized with locally sourced wagyu manure at $7 a pound. No, unless your a pretentious douche. What it does mean is try to buy local and in season when you can. You’re helping people trying to make a living with honest, tasty products as well as reducing the environmental impact of long distance food shipping. Go hit your local farmers’ market today or join a CSA and make a friend (and dinner).
