    observant - that was such a sweet sentiment of how things were when you were growing up. I think there are many people who still feel that way - and many of you are on this blog! :-)

    I knew I was missing a little sister ! LOL
    I wish I could go back to those times !
    We worked hard, played fairly, and ate healthy - mostly what we or those around us raised/grew .
    We RESPECTED everyone and everything we had.
    We shared what we had with someone who needed it - even if it was only a leftover biscuit. A leftover biscuit tasted wonderful when halved and shared .

    Raesmom LOL :)

    Observant, good to know - thanks!

    I guess since I was told that beef tongue was bologna and smoked chubb was tuna when I was a kid, perhaps I've already had jowls?!?!

    Ok at first I was with jdouglas on the hog jowls......but after reading observants post I would totally try it!!! I swear my parents found me in some remote part of the country side of North Carolina/Georgia and took me up to NY lolololol that "pig killing feast" sounds like something I would be happy to participate in :)

    I missed the smoked hog jowl post.
    I have never had smoked hog jowls but the freezer always ha at least one fresh hog jowl for the traditional New Year's meal where I grew up Western North Carolina ) .
    We were raised not waste a thing especially when it came to meat or produce !!
    If it did no longer moved you cooked ,cured ,dried, smoked or pickled it .
    Hog jowls are some of the most tender, flavorful meat you can find in a pig .
    It can be cooked several ways including like a pork roast ( slow cooker or oven roasted) ,
    I do remember my grandfather cooking one over an outdoor fire on pig killing day - that was one of the biggest eating days of the year - family and neighbors working together and sharing in the bounty of everyone's labors. Hog jowls also add great flavoring in vegetables with less fat .

    Baseball2hockey - going to look now to see if I have it.

    Jdouglas - apparently it's used to season the collard and blackeye peas and tastes a lot like bacon. I learned that today!
