People talk about nose-to-tail eating like it's a new thing. It isn't really - throughout history folks have been inventing ways to use every bit of an animal. Brawn, or head cheese, is one of the few things you can do with a pig's head. The cheeks are great, some people like to eat the ears (pigs ears - orejas - are very popular in Spain). If you make brawn, you'll also get a lot of skin which can be fried to make something like pork scratchings, a lot of fat which solidifies into something like pork dripping, and a lot of jelly-rich stock which is always useful for flavouring gravies, soups or stews. Oh, and quite a bit of meat that you can make brawn out of.
