It was all actually really interesting. The kids begged us to let them watch and we decided they were old enough. Mundo quickly sliced Peeta’s throat and started to bleed him. Right after that Ethan said, “I’m done!” and went inside, but Lydia stayed the whole time. That girl isn’t grossed out by anything. (I’m nice and spared you the image of the actual killing of Peeta.) Mundo quickly skinned him, gutted him, and started cutting the meat into pieces all the while telling me the best way to cook it. “Low and slow”, he kept saying.
I knew I wanted to save the kidneys because I planned on making tallow from the fat of the kidneys.
Then Mundo said, “You eat this pancreas, okay? It make you have TWINS!”
In the end it was a great experience. I felt grateful to be able to have so much healthy grass-fed meat for our family. Since Peeta ate our grass and we only had to provide fresh water, the total cost for all that meat was just $30 to pay Mundo for the butchering.
I’ll let you know how the lamb tastes. So far all I know is to cook it, “Low & Slow”.
