1/2 each Hog's head
1 each Liver
1 each Heart
1 each Sweetbreads
1 each Corn meal, yellow
1 each Buckwheat flour
1 each Salt & pepper
1 each Sage, powdered
1 each Mace
Separate one hog's head into halves. Take out the eyes and brains.
Scrape and thoroughly clean the head. Put 1/2 of the head, along with
the liver, heart and sweetbreads of the hog into a big 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 weigh the
meat. For every 3 pounds of meat, use 2 pounds of meal (2 parts corn
meal and 1 part buckwheat flour), 2 teaspoon salt, Half a tsp. pepper, 1 tsp
sage, and 1 teaspoon mace. Cook slowly over low flame about 1 hour. Pour
into pan and let stand until cold. Cut in slices and fry until golden
brown. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes,

The case against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
Most of the bad side-effects stated, like tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Multiple studies over the years have proved that eating too much animal fat causes increased risk of cancer, coronary problems and other inflammatory disorders.
