To find out more about what we ate in Yunnan, including my encounter with a 40 year old mother of all hams, check out my post at Heritage Yunnan Bacon

  1. Wonderful piece, well done Audrey, you sure get around the traps.

    • Audrey Chin says:

      What are “traps” Kath? Yes, the Mosuo are really interesting. Did you watch the YouTube? It’s surprising.

      • Funny you should ask Audrey I never really understood the term as I thought it meant just out and about but here is the real term thanks for asking. Taught me a think or two about Aussie slang words and how we use them without really knowing where they came from.

        “Around the traps” is an Australian slang expression which generally refers to the fact that two or more people are likely to be gathered in the same location in the near future.
        After they’d finished a few beers, Jimmy stood up and said to his friend Thommo: “Gotta go mate. See ya around the traps.”

  2. Seriously Audrey, I could read your writing about food all day. It’s like I’m eating it myself. I’m so full now I don’t think I’ll need to eat lunch.

    So interesting, Audrey. We are getting ready to do our butchering here. Pigs and chickens.

    • Audrey Chin says:

      And what would you be making with the pork and chicken meat Janelle? Would you have any idea how I can preserve that bacon fat in my fridge? Love to hear

      • Janelle says:

        I follow the three day chicken plan. Roast chicken one day, leftover chicken in a casserole the next day, and chicken soup the third day 🙂 Our pig will provide everything from bacon to pork chops to ham. You could render your fat to lard, if you are into that. That is what I plan to do.
