What’s what on a pig?

Ever wondered what bit comes from where on a pig?

Did you know that a pig’s big Spare Rib is also known as Shoulder Joint but that our barbecue spare ribs come from the Belly? Well, Delicious Magazine has a couple of jolly useful online guides with all the porky facts you need to know right here at The Meat Guide to Pork and The Guide to Bacon

They also give some useful advice for cooking pork (especially tips for the perfect gammon) and some mouth-watering recipes too.  We loved this one for their Apricot, Shallot, Pine Nut & Sage Stuffed Pork Loin
