Pickled Pigs Feet, The South
This Southern delicacy is typically slow-cured in a brine of white vinegar, salt and spices and preserved in jars. Eating a pickled pigs foot involves navigating through fat and gristle to find bits of vinegary, hamlike meat. The pickled trotters are sometimes incorporated in rice and bean dishes but most commonly are consumed straight from the jar as a snack with a splash of hot sauce.
