Whites do eat collard greens, but I have never heard nor seen whites eat chitlins or pigs feet. I could perhaps see a few eating chitlins, but never pigs feet. Maybe some older timers do. However, I've yet to see or hear of anyone eating them. I have seen pigs feet in a supermarket, but only in those located in overwhelming black areas.
I have seen pig's feet and chitlins in stores not in black areas here but I don't know many who eat them.

This thread has slowly turned into an online episode of fear factor

That's just wrong. I never heard of pig ear sandwiches until I read this thread but I don't dispute that people may eat it. I didn't know some people in the Midwest eat animal brain sandwiches in some rural areas. I love the map because it's sort of accurate.

I think the maps I posted a few pages back are a better guide to the South, as it includes ancestry, religion, and language. Perhaps we should make burgoo and squirrel brains the test of Southernness.
LOL, well said Bobilee. If the "true" test of southerness was eating wierd/gross things.........Oklahoma would win hands down! Thank God this is not the prime criteria for designated southerness or I would have a lot of explaining to do about my homestate.

What matters NOW is that we eat the best part of the pig.......the ribs....smoked and smothered in Head Country BBQ sauce. Oh man, I just made myself hungry again.

Well, I live in the northwest where ~ according to my tastes ~ food is about as bland (spice-wise) and unexciting as it can get. However, I'm not much of a vegetable person, a diet I find incredibly boring.

I can't wait to return to New Orleans next spring and indulge in their 'gross' food. Tastiest cuisine in the world.

Dry rub is the only fit and proper dress for a pig over coals...
