Pig Parts

Pig for the carnitas store on Insurgentes, San MIguel, Jul 2017

A pig being cut up for our local carnitas store at the top of Insurgentes. It will now be wasned, cut up into smaller pieces, be brined, and then be deep fried in a giant kettle to prepare the delicious carnitas sold here. One of our favorites. I doubt if the back of a pickup is necessarily less hygienic than many of the surfaces on which cellophane-wrapped supermarket porkchops in the US are prepared. At least it is fresh. It was probably running around grunting earlier this morning.
