Wild Boar Carnitas by Bethany Beathard

Wild Boar Carnitas

Several Years ago our family had a hunting lease in South

Georgia. My husband and his friends hunted a lot of Wild Hogs! Most of them we had made into sausage;but, occasionally we would keep a young sow to butcher ourselves. Carnitas was always a family favorite! The term Carnitas just means “little meat,” normally consisting of braised or simmering shredded pork.
