Pig's Head

Granny's story of food she cooked in the past

Matthew Finnerty

Pig’s Head

My grandmother would have cooked this for her children and she did it the same way as her mother would have cooked it.

I think it was nutritious for them as there would not have been much variety in food in those times.  We are not sure how often Granny herself had it as a child but my Dad would have it once a month anyway.  The head would have been got in the butcher’s then.

As a girl Granny would have had it from one of their own pigs or neighbours’ pigs.  They would share the meat.  There would be a good amount of it.
