Yesterday I ground up 5 kilos of home made minced meat from a "home grown" cow.
This cow refused to be caught when the outdoor season was over. She took off into the mountains, and lived her happy free range life for a while longer. But eventually it got so cold that it was irresponsible to leave her outside, and since she still refused to be caught, my son-in-law had to shoot her. Fortunately he has access to a fully equipped and licensed slaughter facility because he also hunts and handles deer. Now every freezer in the family is filled up with meat. Can you imagine the amount of meat there is on a fully grown cow?
This is truly local food, with no additives, and flavored by the great outdoors. We are so lucky and grateful to have access to this kind of food!
