Very Good Reading

Home Pork Making
by A.W. Fulton
The Art of Raising and Curing Pork on the Farm

This text, published in 1900, is available for free download from Google Books.

Chapters 1-2 speak to raising hogs followed by chapters 3-5 which deal with slaughtering, scalding and butchering. Chapter 6 is titled What to do with the Offal and from there the text goes into the finer points of making lard, curing hams, smokehouses, etc. with 17 chapters in all.

Happy reading.
