Pig Out, at the Ohio State Fair!

July 14, 2014

Special guest blog written by Amanda, the coolest intern we’ll have here at the Ohio Pork Council this summer – easily! For as long as I can remember, my family has traveled to the Ohio State Fair to volunteer serving food in the Ohio Pork Council’s pork stand. Whether I was serving drinks, making sandwiches, […]

What do Pigs Eat?

June 4, 2014

We (myself and the rest of the fine folks here at the Ohio Pork Council) get more than our fair share of questions about recipes, cooking with pork, getting the most out of a grocery budget, etc. That’s great! We love to talk pork! We also get TONS of questions about farming and how pigs […]

What kid doesn't grow up dreaming of interning for the Ohio Pork Council?

The slightly sweet, almost caramel, and salty cure along with the smoky wood flavor is very alluring. The flavor flatters savory dishes and compliments sweets as well. Ever notice that when bacon […]

Pork loin can be cubed and put on top of salad for a quick & easy meal solution. (Yes, there is obviously a good bit more pork, cheese, dressing, etc. than there is green stuff on this salad. That's how I roll.)

Pork Gets Who I am

October 22, 2013

I am guilty of many things. Procrastination. Having too many “irons in the fire”. Having “fine wine taste on a beer budget”. Being totally random. Pork helps me make it through all of these. A little while back, a grocery store chain here in central Ohio had pork half loins on sale for $1.69. I […]
