peas?

They're popular in Eastern European cooking too. The only thing you can't eat from the pig is the squeal.

My grandpa used to LOVE those things. Pickled pigs' feet jarred up in a sour aspic type gelatin. He'd eat them with saltine crackers. He offered me some and being a little kid who was totally into anything gross or creepy I decided that I loved them too. My mom was SO unamused when she found out that the old man fed me pigs' feet. She also about lost her poo when she found out he fed me squirrel stew.

Is it really that bent and twisted that whenever I see a jar of pigs' feet at a supermarket I get a pang of nostalgia for my grandpa? LOL!

That's the truth.

My Czech-Bohemian grandma used to serve this sausage called "Jaternice" that is made from various parts of the pig that never make it to the local supermarket meat case. I keep meaning to take a daytrip to the nearest town where there is still an old Czech family owned meat market to buy a few links. I know exactly what's in it. I don't care. I was raised eating stuff like that. It's grandma food for me.

In this part of the country, they call them pigs' knuckles. As a vegetarian, I can't claim to know, but I'm told there's nothing like a knuckle sandwich!

My grandmother made a dish called 'zimne' nogi' which literally means 'cold feet' in Polish, which was exactly that, cold seasoned gelatin (she originally used the collagen from the bones, then when she got older, Knox unflavored gelatin) with onions and sometimes finely shredded carrots, and whatever part of the pig they could get. Some call it head cheese (same thing, only using the head), and Pennsylvania Dutch call it 'sulze or salceson and sometimes salsify', the latter being weird because that's the name of a plant and that plant is definitely not in the dish. In either case, a number of cuisines use the feet, head, and/or the legs to make the dish. Strangely, I've never actually eaten jarred pigs feet but am not adverse to it. My mother loved them.

For the past 15 years, my grandmother had been making it with shredded poached chicken or turkey breast, stock, onions cooked with the meat, gelatin and seasoning. It was usually served in bite-sized chunks in a saucer of apple cider vinegar. I know I can make it myself, and I do indeed miss it. And I also do confess to eating head cheese, even deli head cheese to this day and sometimes asking the butcher/deli clerk to cut a chunk so I can eat it with apple cider vinegar like grandma made it.

EDT: I just did a little research---the dish dates back to 1410.

I'm probably the only fat person on the face of the planet who doesn't like BBQ. I like plain grilled meats and veggies fine, but no sauce--hot, smokey or sweet.
