The Finer Things In Life Starts In The Kitchen

There are many out there in the world that are starving, and I pray that those who are starving, will get help quickly. As a food blogger, I write about food. Sometimes it's about high end foods that even I cannot afford. So blessings to all, and I pray your circumstances will be better. As we all try to do the best we can to help those less fortunate.

This blog post is about the Berkshire Hog, this breed of hog for nearly four centuries is the most sought after flavorful pork.

Originated from the Berkshire County in England, this "black pig" has a superior taste, making this hog, the choice of gourmands around the world. It is tender & juicy making it perfect for the barbecue of baby backs, or searing a chop on a hot pan with some olive oil, garlic, and herbs, rendering a nice sauce. Think of this pork, as the Wagyu Beef of pork.

Without getting into specifics or history of this hog, if you are looking for a good juicy flavorful pork for your special dinners, or backyard grilling this summer, look for Berkshire pork. 

If you go to HERITAGE PORK INTERNATIONAL you will see the different products this company sells, just to give you an idea of what is out there in the market place when it comes to pork. Make no mistake about it, as I am learning about food, and drink constantly, if you do take the time to understand how some food items are raised, or processed, you will have the knowledge to become a better foodie.

Bad grapes produces bad wine, good grapes produces good wine etc. You may pay a few more dollars for better cuts of pork, but you will see the difference in how tasty and juicy a better quality raised hog will be in contrast with a hog that was pumped with all kinds of solutions. Until next time.
