One Friday afternoon my uncle Jon went to Pukekohe farm to purchase a pig. He brang it next door to my uncle Christian’s house. They put the pig in some boiling hot water. Then shaved all its hair off. After they shaved the hair off the pig they took the guts, heart and liver out of the body. Then they rinsed the pig one more time before hanging it upside down to dry. The next morning the pig was taken to a bakery to be cooked. Normally we cook it in an umu but my uncle suggested it is less hassle taking it to professional pork chefs.
Here are some photos of the pig raw and cooked!
