    Well, darn! I just learned something new! (That doesn't happen every day...) So what we call ham hocks, or pig tails, or silk purses (pig'ears) is known as 'bacon bones' Down Under. I declare!

    Now, we forgot to mention what kind of brew goes best with the afore-mentioned soup!?

    I'm glad you said something, because I couldn't imagine what bacon bones could be.

    Bacon is out of brine. It is not pink like the pictured kind because I don't use the chemicals. I let it drain for 15 minutes than rolled it in the cornmeal. Placed it into tray, no cover and back in the frig for a week.

    Bacon's made from all manner of piggy bits and the bones are cut away before slicing into rashers. These are the bacon bones and excellent for all manner of creations, specially pea and ham or punkin soups. Naturally I serve them with chilled Aussie beer.

    Turned out good. Just a little salty. Less brine time needed. The two in the freezer will get a soak in plain ice water before I cook them to get some of the salt out.

    Oh, for crying out loud, Brinie! You know I live in AZ, never been to your part of the planet (not for wanting....) what kinds of beers do you favor? Do you folks do micro-brews? Bottled, canned, Fosters, what!?

    My hubby's family always had a hog or two going, made their own bacon, hams, sausage etc. And they came from Thunder Road country (grain alcohol), but no home-made beer, not that I have heard.

    BTW, how's yer summer going? Nice weather? Or hot?

    Truth is that it's almost impossible to buy a Fosters in Oz as we only export the rubbish. Now I've settled down for a while I'm back brewing my own and am very fond of a Mangrove Jack product called Dutch Lager - as crisp and dry as they come. Currently cooking an ale and a special stout that matures at breakfast time on Christmas day. The weather couldn't be better and I reckon we'll be eating the curl out of piggy's tail. Happy daze to all!

    Just checked out the Mangrove Jack; sounds like a Heinekin clone? Good with commestibles, or just cheerful swilling!!? What sort of ale? Special Stout; now that sounds intriguing! I like the red ales the micro-breweries make in CA. Not done any micros here in AZ...

    Are you getting some rain? Any gardening going on at your place?
