Help -- got a pigs head but it still has hair!

dawnnyc | Nov 16, 2012 04:08 PM

Hello, I just picked up a butchered half hog from a local small farm. I asked for the head thinking I would make headcheese or something. I got it home and it still has hair on it. What do you think I should do? Try to skin it? I don't think I can burn the hair off. Now I'm a bit concerned I'm in over my head...pun intended. Any help greatly appreciated. Oh and there is also a shot in the head from when they killed it.
