Now that the farmer’s markets are closed, the only people who gather at the Cambridge parking lot next to the Charles River are those who have a share in Stillman’s meat CSA. This month’s share was mostly pork: pork chops, country style pork ribs, sweet Italian sausage, pork cutlets, ground pork, plus ground beef and a whole chicken.
The giveaway box was full of pig’s feet, the trotter and lower shank together. I grabbed four, but no one else seemed as enthusiastic. And why not? Who passes on free trotters?
