We forego the hog jowl and have fried cabbage as our *greens*.

Mrs. Hugin is Russian/Polish descent, so the lucky meal is kielbasa, sauerkraut and dumplings every New Year.

Mother used to always cook black eyed peas and hog jowls for new years day. She almost never cooked collard greens because I didn’t like them. If one member of her family didn’t like something she would very seldom cook it.

She did cook mustard greens and turnip greens. Also what she called corn bread but everyone else calls corn pone. She also cooked an unusually good “hoe cake”.

Mother cooked Southern because that is the way her Mother cooked. She use a lot of grease but only a fraction of what my paternal grandmother used. Grandmother’s greens would be swimming in grease.

My brother said the reason Mother’s vegetables were so good was she used grease but not a lot.

Yum! I miss the bagels and lox, eggcreams, real NY-style pizza, but I love Southern cooking also. Pinging for later. Happy New Year everyone!

After about 1985, pork, both smoked and fresh, just wouldn't stay down.
So I had to substitute beef fat, either original beef jerky, or normally cracked pepper flavored.
The taste isn't the same, but it IS good.

There's not a lot of difference between bacon and hog jowl.
Both are smoked, salted and cured.
