My sister can still skin one, but she needs me there to cut it up, and wrap it for the freezer.

I do remember the long days butchering 5 or 6 hogs, making head cheese, and rendering buckets of lard. Most times ate too many crackings and couldn't sleep that night.

goes like that

from the pork you don't waste ANYTHING...

let alone during the war
money... especially in big cities... counted far less than having a hog in the courtyard

Yeah, we got almost the same saying over here. "You can eat everything on the pig except the squeal. "
