After hog's head has been cleaned take a sharp ax and split head open lengthwise. Remove brains, eyes and tongue. Then chop around the jawbone to remove teeth. Wash well and remove all small bones. You may want to save some for New Year's for your good luck black eye peas. If so cut in small pieces and freeze.
