Recipe of the Day
A lot of ethnic recipes use pig tails. They are great as a meat dish with turnip greens, black-eyed peas, or boiled cabbage. My recipe cooks the tails, twice and the result is a crispy crackling covering the tail, that you can eat or save for crackling in cornbread. The crushed red pepper can be used liberally for a spicy taste. Be sure to buy pig tails that have a lot of meat around the upper part.
Miss the tarheel tradition of a pig pickin'? Then find yourself a crock pot, a big pork shoulder, some cider vinegar and get cooking! While ground and crushed red pepper will provide the basic heat - go the extra mile and find some Texas Pete (or Trappey's) pepper sauce to bring the taste of Carolina to your kitchen.
Low and slow defines this recipe for shredded pork, marinated overnight in root beer, rubbed with warm and flavorful spices, then slowly simmered for 6 hours in a slow cooker in a cooking sauce with more root beer, balsamic vinegar, and a shot of whiskey. The meat is shredded and served on soft buns.
