Mangalista pork

Have no idea how to cook it yet, but very excited. Supposedly out of this world. For the price it better be. I love my butcher.

    It almost looks like pure fat to me.  Am I looking at it wrong?

    I think it pretty much is.

    You cut that off and render it down for cooking. Way overpriced, but give it a shot.
  • Cure it and smoke it?

    That breed came from Hungary - a cross with wild boar.  Developed as a lard pig - confit was a popular preservation technique before refrigeration.  Kind of a Kobe pig. Hairy like a sheep.

    You can cure it and use it for pancetta, or cure and smoke for bacon, or render down and eat and save the lard for cooking, or make cracklin's.   Anything you add it to you can sex-up the name "Mangalitza Pork ____".

    Yes sir correct as usual. I cut off most of the fat and am rendering now. Smells fantastic. I will grill the meat, because that is how I am cooking tomorrow. But Hungarian acorn eaters is correct.
