Meat in the freezer!

We picked up the remainder of the pork from the butcher, all the bacon and hams. So far we have tried the pork chops and pork fingers (belly strips) which were very nice. Looking forward to the smokey bacon! I will be cooking up one of the hams (and glazing it, something I haven't tried before) any day now.

We also collected our beef (1/2 beast as 'payment' for having the heifers graze our land), so the freezer is pretty full now! So we have lots of lovely steak, mince, stewing meat and roasts to see us through for a few months.

Don't you just love that full freezer? To think it's all home grown- how exciting. Maa.

Yes indeed, we just need some lamb now!
