I only know that if you pour alcohol on pork you will see little worms come out of it. That's a fact. I don't know about you but I don't like the idea of eating worms dead or not when you cook pork.

I find your comment intriguing and am interested in conducting an experiment. What kind of alcohol should I use, and is there a particularly wormy cut of pork? If it proves to actually be a fact, as you claim I will happily post photographs of my experiment to the blog.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Holy buckets! I'm waiting with bated breath for the outcome of the experiments here! That would, indeed, be an icky experience, seeing worms wriggling out.

Meanwhile, though- a little reality check. We hate to acknowledge it, but we ALWAYS eat worms, with our food. All food. Just a little fact we avoid remembering. One of my teachers in grad school took great delight in this mental image - if you removed ALL other organisms in the world- except nematodes- you'd still be able to see- everything in the world.

They're everywhere, ALWAYS; both free-living and parasitic, mostly microscopic.

I eventually got over it. Ok, I eat worms all the time. Moving on...

Hi! Did anyone do the pork & alcohol experiment? It sounds great, I'd really love to see the pics.

yeah, worms come out of pork if you pour alcohol on it... if the pork has been sitting out of the refridgerator for EXTENDED periods of time... like 4 hours or more... you can retard the worms if you marinate the meat in acids... a trichonosis case from pork hasnt been in america in over 100 years. eating pork at medium rare is fine, i do it every time i have a pork chop, and in 25 years, no trichonosis.
