Such posts are not shown everywhere, so let it be here today.
The day I wanna show is December, 17th. We went to the village of our grandmother, to help the relatives and get some meat. And here I’ll show the way of meat to your fridge. Vegetarians, please, do not see. One animal did suffered.
The place of the shooting is Vediltsy village, the Chernigovsk region, Ukraine.
The clock shows..
Going to the yard
In the barn a little piglet is meeting us, but we won’t be interested in him today.
We are interested in this pig today, it’s her time to be slaughtered. First of all we have to tie it up.
In the yard it was slaughtered. To do it we had to hold it with ropes for the front and rear legs. It has to be stabbed right into heart. If it fails for the first time, it must be repeated.
Then the pig is dragged to another place in the yard where it has to be dressed.
It has to be tarred first, i.e. burnt and be removed everything unnecessary from.
It is put some straw on..
And set fire to.
And from another side
Brother is bringing more straw
Tarring is made with a gas vessel, a hose. The pig has to be tarred from both sides.
It has to be carefully scraped and cleaned.
Ready from one side, now has to be done the same from another one. On the photo you may see the difference between the haired pig and how the pig must look.
Has to be washed with hot water several times.
Scapped with a knife
And from another side.
Has to be cut now
The water is being heated for various needs.
The first piece of meat is sent to the kitchen.
Dogs are waiting to be treated too.
Gallbladder is thrown away
Blood is also collected, it will be needed.
Cooking in the mean time
and the head
Gosh… let’s rest outside
The meat and by-products are being cut for making blood sausage.
In the basin with blood the minced meat is put.
The meat will be ready soon
But I have to leave for Chernigov and Slavutich for some business: I have to buy furniture, transport some staff..
Almost all the remaining time we were on the way..
Chernigov, the city that doesn’t have much to attract with…
Old houses in the centre, in bigger cities they all have turned to business centres..
On the way to Slavutich
After Slavutich we came back to the village where we could finally enjoy fresh cooked meat! )
And went to bed.
