Pig's Feet Anyone?

Apparently all the nuts making threats against elected officials aren’t unique to Montana.  Today Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) was sent a bloody pig’s foot with an anti-Semitic note.  Sadly for the dim-wit mailing the package there wasn’t much response as the Capital Hill mail room intercepted the offensive parcel and it never made it to King’s office.

Funny thing about this story is that I remember that one of our elderly neighbors just loved boiling up a good pot of pig’s feet as he claimed it made a meal fit for a King (no pun intended) Just in case Representative Hansen  or any of our other representatives that are regularly getting threatened get a package containing some pig's feet here's what you do;
Boiled Pigs Feet Recipe Ingredients:

• 4 pigs feet, split in half lengthwise
• 2 medium onions, chopped
• 2 stalks celery, chopped
• 1 garlic clove, chopped
• 1 bay leaf
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup white vinegar
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 3 teaspoons crushed red pepper
• barbecue sauce
• water
Cookware and Utensils:
• 1 dutch oven or large boiling pot
• 1 cutting board
• 1 measuring spoons

Recipe Instructions:
As always the key to great cooking is to be prepared and to use quality ingredients. Okay, so where do you buy pigs feet? Often times you will have to ask the grocery store butcher for the pigs feet because they're usually frozen and sometime stored in the back of the store.
1. Begin by giving the pigs feet a good washing. For presentation purposes remove any unsightly hair that you observe. Yes pigs grow hair on the toes and feet just like humans. A disposable razor will remove the hair.
2. Place all the ingredients in a large boiling pot and cover with water. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover pot with lid and allow pigs feet to cook until tender, about 3 hours. While your meat is cooking stir constantly and skim away any foam that develops.

  1. in fairness...
    king is a...
    war HOGGG.

  2. I feel like I need a decoder ring to unravel Johnson's posts.

  3. king=notable eastern polly ticker...
    man who supports all the wars in the interest of the war industry...
    ergo war hog...
    with emphasis...

    whine about that.

  4. You saying King deserved to be threatened Johnson?

    What is the matter with you? Mental healthcare cut get your program axed?

  5. didn't suggest any threats...
    though king et al....
    kill little brown children around the world at every opportunity.
    could that be called a threat?

    mental health?
    seems to be a lot of support for the political crime kings of our fair nation 'round these parts.

    THAT'S a mental health issue.

    it is also a scream that our local "middle class" community would suck up to the rich who have been dismantling the constitution and our quality of life since YOU were born.
    can't diagnose the confusion of joe the plummer...
    might be another mental health issue.

  6. come to think of it...
    maybe a hellfire missile fired into a wedding party...
    IS the same as a hog's foot in the mail for a war hawg.

  7. I got mine from a cracker jack box cranky. ha
