In the villages of Georgia, and many other countries throughout Asia, people raise their own pigs in the summertime and then kill them in the Autumn and Winter for food.

Not a single part of the animal is wasted

Traditionally the pig is slaughtered with a knife and then put in a wooden trough and showered with hot water to remove the hair.

The pig is then removed from the trough and any remaining hair is removed with a knife and fire and then it is again washed with hot water.

This is how it has always been done in these parts of the world
