Ingredients

1 tsp
 Sage, powdered
 Hog's head
 Water
 Salt & pepper
 Corn meal, yellow



Instructions:

Separate one hog's head into halves. Take out the eyes and brains. Scrape and thoroughly clean the head. Put into a large kettle and cover with 4 or 5 quarts of cold water. Simmer gently for 2 or 3 hours, or until the meat falls from the bones. Skim off grease carefully from the surface; remove meat, chop fine and return to the liquor. Season with salt & pepper to taste and 1 tsp sage. Sift in granulated yellow corn meal, stirring constantly, until the mixture
is thickened to the consistency of soft mush. Cook slowly for 1 hour, watching carefully as it scorches easily. When sufficiently cooked, pour into greased oblong tins and store in a cool place until ready
to use. Cut in thin slices and fry in hot fat until crisp and brown. Arts Press, 1936.
