Black Pork Pig Jeju

"Black Pork" from the meat of black pigs is a specialty of Jeju Island off the south west coast of South Korea.

Traditionally the porkers were kept in volcanic stone pens to be slaughtered for special occasions such as weddings, births and funerals.

Black Pork is eaten in kebabs and as a barbecue, traditionally roasted over charcoal with garlic.

Up until the 1960s in some areas of Jeju Island the pigs were human waste disposers, with latrines emptying into their sties, as the image of a stone statue at Geumneung Stone Garden graphically shows below.
