    Hoges, does this mean you voted first? On which 'version'? LOL. I
    screwed up (again) - forgot an answer the first time I put it up - and
    Nancy Young also claimed a TFH.... if that's the case, it means I owe

    Pork used to be my favourite meat. My mother used to do a terrific roast
    loins, but it just doesn't turn my crank the way it used to. Most of the
    pork I get in the grocery store these days is bland. The local Dutch butcher
    has really good pork chops, and his bacon is incredible. It is much better
    than the packaged stuff, and a lot cheaper.

    I'm one of the raspberry hold outs. They always taste moldy to me. You can

    Pork producers have pretty much ruined pork. Skinny pigs do not make tasty
    pork. It doesn't even matter if you buy it from a local meat locker if
    they're the skinny pigs.

    I hear ya. I have a sneaking suspicion that it has something to do with
    the way that they usually 'inject' the pork we find in the (so-called)
    butcher shops these days, but that is JMHO, of course.

    Ham is on sale for Easter this week but yes, it's that injected crap. We'll
    probably be having standing rib roast (prime rib), it's on sale $5.99/lb!
    Yum

    You can have my share of ham. I like roast pork, pork chops, tenderloins and
    ribs. I often use cheap cuts of pork for slouvaki, but I have never much cared
    for ham.

    That's patently false. The anatomy of pigs is such that the fat is
    primarily on it's exterior, pork is just not marbelized like beef.
    Years ago cuts of pork did contain a higher proportion of fat, but it
    was in the form of a thicker layer of fat on the exterior, fat that
    almost all folks trimmed away and discarded. Leaner pork is not in
    any way inferior, but it sure is more economical to buy pork with much
    less waste.

    To me there is something very off putting about raising livestoick as
    pets and then slaughtering them for the table... I look at that little
    girl at the grill on the home page and wonder if she knows she will be
    eating her favorite, little Petunia.

    If you're not happy with how the pork you buy tastes than change
    stores, refuse to buy that injected slimey crap and quick as you can
    count the little piggies of one hand it will disappear from the meat
    case... bitch with your feet and your pocketbook. I hope folks will
    shun such pandering meat mongers who are only manipulating the
    ignorant for their dollars, their meat is not better, likely it's more
    contaminated with drugs than pork from the ordinary pig farmers...
    that pork from the Disney-like purveyers is better is a myth.

    I'm kind of surprised you feel that way.

    She probably does know. Every farm kid I've ever met has had some

    along the lines of:

    Kid: What's for dinner?

    Sadly true, and here in northern Italy the majority of pork is from
    skinny pigs, aka "magrone" (big lean). Now someone has started to
    respond to people whining about tasteless pork and good products are
    arriving in the butcheries, but they're a minority.
    Here there is the newly spread "gran suino padano" ("great swine from
    Pianura Padana") which I have seen only recently and is bred big and
    fat as pigs have to be. I tried both pork chops and spare ribs and
    its' wonderful pork, tasty as I have found only in south germany and
    in a farm near here who produces very little pork.
    Things are changing, luckily.
