If you have read my March review of the Dolores Chili Brick, you may remember my rave review of the product and the recipe I created using it. At that time I had mentioned that having enjoyed the Chili Brick so much I was curious to try the pickled pigs feet and pickled pork rinds made by the Dolores Canning Company. Dave Munoz from Dolores saw my interest and graciously sent me a jar of each.
Now, these are products about which I have been curious but have been hesitant to try. I tried to find some of my family members who might want to sample these with me, but none stepped forward except my adventurous youngest daughter, Angelina. I seem to recall having tried pigs feet about forty years ago and somewhat liking them, but I was apparently not so enamored as to try them again since that time. This past Sunday Angelina and I were up for the challenge.
Appearance-wise what can I say. They look very weird in an unappetizing sort of way. My wife refused to look at them. Ange could only describe them as "gross". Here is a picture of the two jars from the unlabeled side.
Ange tried the first tasting which was the pigs feet. I captured the moment on video. By the way, despite the fact that she still looks like a kid, Ange is 21. The toddler in the background is hers. I'll let the video speak for itself.
