--------------------------DID YOU KNOW?-------------------------

Chitlin's are considered a delicacy (a special and desirable food) in South Carolina and other parts of the South. But chitlin's must be prepared carefully. They must be soaked and rinsed thoroughly in several changes of cool water, and repeatedly picked clean, by hand, of extra fat and specks. They are then boiled and simmered until tender. They can be prepared different ways. Standard recipes call for simmering the chitlin's for three to five hours in water seasoned with salt, black pepper, and perhaps hot peppers, along with vinegar and an onion. But everyone has a different recipe. Sometimes they are cooked with hog maws (hog stomach), or fried in a batter.

-----------------WHO'S WHO IN THE CULINARY ARTS-----------------

Head, Mr. Potato (1952 - )
In 1952, Mr. Potato Head was born. Consisting entirely of parts, consumers had to supply the potato. Mr. Potato Head was the first toy to be advertised on network television.  Mrs. Potato Head appeared in 1953, and in 1964 the Potato Heads begin to come with plastic bodies included.
