Saw them at the Asian grocery store for $1.29 a pound and figured why not? I'm not entirely sure how to cook it. I've never eaten pigtails in my life but I've had pig trotters so I'm guessing the tails will be similar unctuous fatty goodness.
I'm thinking about putting everything in a crock pot and going the Asian route - dark soy, ginger, garlic, maybe some black vinegar.
Any other ideas? I saw a lot of southern recipes while doing a quick google search in the store.
