I know it's holiday time and all, and here i am going on about chitterlings--sorry. But all the talk recently about headcheese and pickled pigs feet got me to craving some chitterlings. Does anybody have a recipe to share? I have never had them fried--only boiled. But i would be interested in any good chitterlings recipe, and i thank you in advance....

i would try them if given a chance. i think i'd like them braided and grilled, as i've seen on some travel cooking shows.
i guess a lot of this is about perspective. i saw a show once about how the inuit eat the digestive tract of seals that they hunt, containing poop and all.

since edible things are few and far between in perpetually icy climes, you must eat every bit of what fate affords you.

this includes seals, and what seals eat. since the latter is all fish, their poop is a concentrated fishy treat. lol.

i vuess you get past all of the snobbery when the other option is to starve or freeze to death.

so, with a little work, i say bring on the chitterlings.

and a lot of beer.

Only if they are stump slung, hand squeezed, creek run. and then fried ~~ Don't care for the "dumplings" ~~ Several pulls on a jug seem to make them taste better too.....

Enjoy

One of the things taught to survivalists is to NOT kill your self with food when you find some. Its not snobbery, its intelligent eating to not eat feces or stomach contents. It can kill you itself.

Poorly cleaned chitlin's can cause you to be very, very sick or die.

e coli is nothing to play with. Some people just don't wish to take that chance. To refer to them as snobs isn't a fair thing.

you're taking me out of context, tim.
i mentioned that it was a perspective thing, either eat something risky or die from starvation.

of course it's not snobbish if you have a choice of what to eat.

Sorry Tom, I didn't know any other way to take "i guess you get past all of the snobbery when..."

I'm well educated and well read, Tom. I understand fully what "context" means.

Exactly what DID you mean by using the word "snobbery" in the context that you used it?" Who is a snob and why?

take it easy tim. it wasn't a personal attack, although you really seem to want to make it that.

i'll try again. there's no possibility of any kind of sobbery existing in any possible form if you must eat every part of an animal in order to survive -including the poop - in a frozen, desolate place.

i was making a point by juxtaposing the eating of poop versus a food snob simply for superlative value, not to accuse anyone.

Thanks for the explanation, Tom. I really didn't understand how you meant the reference. Nothing personal man. I thought perhaps you were labeling one or more of the people in the discussion. My mistake. Sorry. I hate labels. It seems like so many people have to hang a label on everyone they meet.
