Have you tried them on the barbecue? Here barbecued sheep's tails are a delicacy - crispy skin and lovely to chew on. The same can be done with pigs' tails. And have you ever tried pigs' ears? Yummy.

stew recipe please!

Hey, I'm in Belize, originally from the US and there is at least one good reason to eat pig tail here: it's fricking cheap!

However, I can't find any recipes online, except using the salted/pickled tail in the US or other countries as salt meat for beans, etc. The stuff I have access to is fresh..well, frozen, but not processed in any way, pig tail.

So please, bring on the recipes!

Ah memories.....aren't they grand? My dad had his "play room" behind the garage. Dad was Italian and one of the most social people I've ever known and he loved to cook...actually I think what he loved best was feeding people so he had to cook :) In his play room he had a side by side refrigerator freezer always stocked with wine, champagne, salami, pepperoni and other goodies. He had a BeerMeister too and frequently commented that one had to continuously check the beer to make certain the keg hadn't gone bad.

He would pickle various things (besides himself and his friends ) including pigs feet. I carefully avoided his experiments. He especially enjoyed making drunk watermelon which we all considered harmless until my son innocently got ahold of one when he was 5 years old and got plastered with it! Dad was not good at labeling or keeping track of which things in that fridge had been "tampered" with.

He also made the best lasagne, rabbit & polenta and rissoto in the whole world - mostly because all of his dishes were seasoned with love.
Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....
