Researching for Haysi's post over in another part of the site, I came across this terrible news:-

"chitlins" are parts of a pig like feet that are pickled. they are normally served in the Southern part of the US with collard greens and cornbread. they are vile, smell even worse and are really quite disgusting. you can buy them in big, glass jars in grocery stores here, most popularly in the South.

aren't "chitlins" also considered pig's feet as well? i know it's pretty much all the digusting part of a pig, pickled and served with greens.

if you want a little more information on "soul food" of which "chitlins" are a basic staple of...here's more information about the origins. thanks Wikipedia! :)

my personal favorite and my momma's speciality is called "chicken fried steak" with mashed potatoes and a gravy made from the pan drippings.

There was once a Soul Food buffet at my college, and someone bought a lot of tickets to support the group doing it, and she gave me one of the tickets.

I had chittlings that day; and it was the only day I will ever have them. YUCK!

And this is coming from someone who has eaten a lot of strange foods.

It all depends on how they are cooked. If they are cleaned properly and enough hot sauce is added (that is a must, if you don't like spicy food don't bother) than they are really really yummy.
