    My Mom's family raised hogs when she was growing up, and her older sister always made hogs head cheese and pork mincemeat for pies when they butchered one of the animals, and her dad always made the best sausage. My mouth waters just thinking about it.

    Thanks for posting, and ^5

    I can't wait to try this recipe. My aunt made this for us one year when she came to visit from New Brunswick. It was divine. We had great fun inviting all the neighbourhood kids over to see the pig's head in the freezer.
    What kinds of spices would you recommend? Thanks so much for posting this recipe.
