    Does anyone here like pigs feet?? And does anyone have any recipes for making some homemade ones? I had some at my folks house back in the Carolinas, and they were great.

    I love them. What's even better is pickled pig knuckles that you buy in the jar like the pigs feet down here. They have lean meat on them.

    I have never know anyone to prepare their own.

    It's about 100 miles west of here near Greenville. I know two fellows from Woodruff--one here in Lancaster and one in Lexington.

    Many rural areas are changing. Charlotte has spilled over into Lancaster County.

    LOVE THEM!!!!!! Get mine from a little mom and pop grocer over our way, the link is interesting, my grand pop used to make them his self when he made his horse radish and kraut but unfortunately that recipe is long gone...... was never put to paper that I can remember, sure would love to have it though

    I love pickled pigs feet and hocks. Every time I open a tube of clear silicone it makes me hungry for them! lol
    No kidding, soak in vinegar. I'm going to try that. You know that the fresher the egg the harder it is to peel. Get a dozen or so a couple of weeks ahead then boil and cool, the shell will come right off.:wink:

    Now Mark, you evidently have never tasted both as there's a world of difference. Beer and pig feet are hard to beat. Chitlins taste like you know what!

    only reason i never ate one (or chitlins) is because after it leaves the chitlins they step it it.:0a30:

    only thing worse than poo. it dirty poo.:smile2: mix that with feet. man. not even viniger can kill that thought.
