Tonight, I am here to share with you a few lessons learned from my experience with the pig tails:
- No one tells you that pig tails look very disturbing. I didn't take any pictures of them, and even if I did, I don't think I could post them without having Blogger flag them for being rather obscene. If you are really curious, you can do a Google image search, but be warned - they are very phallic.
- Pig tails are also very time consuming to cook. Based on Little House in the Big Woods, I imagined that they could just be tossed in the over with a little salt, but a quick online search told me otherwise. They had to be boiled (with at least one change in water) and then roasted. The good news is that the enterprise is largely hands off, but it does take a lot of time.
- Given all of the time you will put in, there is little meat to be had.
- Even though there is little meat, there is a lot of skin and fat. This makes them very rich.
