Let me first say that I did not choose to read Little House In The Big Woods.
Yes, its sad, but I was forced.
Anyways, back to the Headcheese.
According to Little House in the Big Woods, Headcheese is a delicacy that comes from the tender, moist flesh on a hog’s face.
For all of you out there that want to try to make Headcheese in your own kitchen, try this classic recipe.
