Jowl.

img_2904Huh.

Saw this yesterday, thought it would be interesting to cook for new years day.   Apparently, its a southern thing – pork jowl with black eyed peas.  No peas for us.

Its going to be like the ox tail we did some time ago.

thumbnail_img_2907Instead, we braised the jowl in the broiler with red potatos, onions, etc., then put it in the crock pot for the day.   We shall see.

Not the first time, but interesting.  The US public play’s pokemon and dither around with a Hillary or Trump presidency, and Russians are actually preparing for war with the West:
