Where do milk, eggs and bacon come from? One in three youths don't know
Daily Telegraph ^ | 6-14-12 | Telegraph reporters

Posted on 06/14/2012 2:25:36 PM PDT by TurboZamboni

More than a third of 16 to 23-year-olds (36%) do not know bacon comes from pigs and four in 10 (40%) failed to link milk with an image of a dairy cow, with 7% linking it to wheat, the poll of 2,000 people for charity Leaf (Linking Environment and Farming) found. Some 41% correctly linked butter to a dairy cow, with 8% linking it to beef cattle, while 67% were able to link eggs to an image of a hen but 11% thought they came from wheat or maize.

Not everybody pays attention to how these “quick purchase” items tend to be in the furthest corner of the grocery store from the entrance.

Here it’s Woolworths’s. Back home it’d be Safeway, TOP foods or Albertsons. Don’t see the problem with that. Is there?

Homer: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Lisa, honey, are you saying you’re never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal!
Homer: [Chuckles] Yeah, right Lisa. A wonderful, MAGICAL animal.

I am not a bit surprised at all of that, most also think that electricity just comes out of the wall and water just comes out of the faucet.

What I find amazing is how many Preppers have no clue how to make bacon or sausage. "Oh mighty Prepper, you have water for a year, grains and cereal to feed your family for 6 months - what do you do when you shoot a Deer or Moose?

Eat yourself sick for 3 days, then bury the rest? Those with an interest may find the topic of Charcuterie fascinating.

That’s exactly it actually. I think the technical term they use is “maximize your opportunity to decide to make other purchases” but the concept is the same, to make you walk through as much of the store as possible to see as many different items as possible so that maybe you’ll decide to buy something else. That’s why all that stuff you want to get by “surgical strike” (milk, bread, produce, meat, liquor, deli, pharmacy) is spread all around the perimeter of the store, if you want more than 3 items on that list you’ll wind up walking around the entire store.

I certainly do. The Albertson’s we used to have before they were bought out by Publix had a cooler in the FRONT of the store where you could get milk, eggs and bacon quickly and not have to go all the way to the back of the store. But now they, Publix, are just the same as everybody else...........

In Australia it’s the main market. I was surprised too when I got here and found out it was a food market and not a five and dime store.

This is a UK survey, right? So US kids would score lower.

what do you do when you shoot a Deer or Moose?

Keep it slowly simmering for a couple of weeks, adding water & veggies every day?

Bury it in beach sand, and let it sit over the winter, then drink it?

Or maybe lace it with with poison, and hope the nasty neighbors steal it. ;-)


Salt cure/corn; jerk; brine & smoke; pressure can it.

For long term keep of game meat without means to freeze. Cut up meat with the grain, in strips, slow smoke or dry it for jerky. No, it won’t be the same as the bagged flavored and tender jerky you get at the grocery store. It will be rock hard, require soaking in water to be cut up for cooking. Or, can whack off a chunk with axe, then chaw on it for a few hours to pass the time.

A few years ago there was a show with Amish and dingbat 20 somethings. One silly dingbat refused to eat an egg because it was an aborted chicken.

We don’t like venison, I know, I know it is just wonderful to most people but that is in the East where there is a lot of good things for them to eat and not just brush and juniper berries but we love it made into jerky. We make red chile, green chile, peppered and plain and we have to ration it.

Ah! Shades of a favorite Blues lyric!

Faucet comes outa da wall.
I come out when I hear my name.
So baby, give me a call!”

The question of whether a chicken comes from an egg or an egg from a chicken has had philosophers scratching their heads for millenia!

The philosophers have proven that they can't reason their way out of a wet paper bag: obviously, it's the rooster that came first.
