So I found those fried crispy pork rinds at my local supermarket and was wondering if I could have them since they're fried in 'their own fat' and only some salt is added, and THEY ARE DELICIOUS and nice when you can't have regular chips.... (more)

It can taste gamy, and generally, the gamier the taste the more pastured it is. Acorn finished pigs have bright red, gamy, leaner meat (they have to go up and down hills), not far from the taste of a wild boar of course. Go for gamy, if you care... (more)

Paleo gets a little too hung up on grass-fed and organic. Grass-fed is great, but 100% grass-fed isn't necessary - some grain is fine in a cow's diet. Even more is fine for chicken and pigs (they're not grazing animals, they forage.) Organic...... (more)

It is very similar to beef heart, and I agree with suggestions. To tenderize, marinate. Ginger is something that will soften the meat. I hesitate to recommend poaching or stewing because heart has no fat and does not tenderize like fatty, tough... (more)

Worrying about a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food is worse for your health than consuming a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food. So my answer is that it's fine but I suppose it really depends on your goals.

Grass fed pork will have a slightly better ratio. To get your ratio high consider wild salmon twice a week and grass feed beef or bison the other days. And pastured eggs. Or some variation of that.

Crock pot. Slab of pork belly that fits in the bottom. Season with whatever you want, but salt and a tiny bit of honey seems to be magic. On low for 6-8 hours. Slice, pan sear in the fat that accumulates in the bottom of the crock pot. So delicious! (more)

If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.
