Pastured pork, from pig to prosciutto(r/food)
OP’s book/media suggestions, formatted with links:
- People start with Ruhlman’s Charcuterie, but quickly learn it’s heavy on salt.
- For some slightly more esoteric recipes, check out In the Charcuterie by Taylor Boetticher and Levonia Miller. I absolutely “butchered” those names, btw.
- Also, get a book called Pig Perfect by Peter Kaminski… Not a lot of recipes, but it will enamor you with all things pig.
- Show… There’s a series on BBC called <Time Period> Farm]… Edwardian, Victorian, Jacobean, etc… Where a group of historians run a farm for a year by the standards of the time period. It’s cool and they do some pig stuff.
