    How many of you like fried okra or cracklings.
    Now,tell me that ain't good.Salt herring is not too bad either.

    So,some of the off topic police are going to chew my #ss.

    It just don't get any better than that. I'm originally from Eastern NC and I love my salt herring. Get it shipped to FL by the five gal. container!

    Jackie B,we butchered six hogs this morning.
    The cracklings you buy will not even come close to the old style.

    ...mmm mmm good on that fried Okra, boiled just isn't to my liking. I'm not too sure exactly what cracklins are (a little help?), but fry me up some hog jowl and I'm the pig in slop!

    About 20 some years ago on a trip to California, someone fixed us some fried okra.

    Having never tried it, we found out it was delicious.

    Never have eaten any since, but I do remember how good it was.

    Hauxfan!

    Spitter,cracklings are the skin off a hog when you cook the lard and they come to the top.Try them and you will never forget.Like the smell of Federal papers.
    I got six friends in the garage skimming them off right now.
    Sure steams the windows up.Someone has to make a beer run soon.

    If the fat is skinned before cooking the cracklins are softer and can be put in cornbread. Raises hell with the blood test but damn they are good. I haven't had a homemade batch that was really good in 40 years.

    Bo - thanks for that!

    Being a jewish guy from Chicago, I know all about bagels and lox, but marrying into a southern family in LA near Dothan, it has been a learning experience on both sides.

    I can remember a time I was at pig roast, eating a heaping portion of BBQ pork and one of the cousins asked if I was "practicing?"... Nope I said, I got it down pretty good! (lol)

    Now how about them "oysters"?! And I don't mean the Apalachiacola variety...

    okra tastes like dandelions to me. I have tried it and I don't get it.
