Just as a warning, this post contains pictures of a deceased pig after the jump.
Friday we finished up the jam and I actually haven’t even had a chance to try it out yet. We actually ended up with 4 jars of jam and 2 small ones that were more like compote.
The part where I discuss the pig roast (with photos) is after the jump.
At night we went to our friends’ house to help them prep the pig for the pig roast. Chris and Jason made sausage by having one person hold the casings while the other filled it using a pastry bag.
Later they filled the pig with a flavorful injection and then they stuffed it with the sausages and apple wedges before sewing it up. Jason got to put on heavy duty work gloves and use this crazy huge needle for the process.
Saturday the pig was ready in the early afternoon (it had been smoking for about 13 hours) and we ate our faces off.
