I'm having a bit of an issue prepping my first head. I've soaked the skinned head since Saturday and then simmered tonight for 40 mins. I say simmered as it never really reached a rolling boil. When I got it out I put it in a bucket of cold water for a few minutes and started to clean the excess meat off. However, it is like rubber! It's not coming off easily at all and the majority is managing to flick back into my face!! Have I simply not boiled it long enough and is it salvageable with another half hour or so?
In addition, I boiled it on the stove top with the extractor on full and some incense on the go and the wife hasn't said a thing!!
