Chitterlings or Chitlings (Mixed Pipes and Maws) are Washed pork intestines turned inside-out, cleaned, plaited and boiled. Usually sold cooked and chilled, sometimes in their own jelly, to be eaten cold with vinegar and mustard, or fried with bacon.
N.B. Chitterlings by the nature of their function to the digestive process have a distinct and pungent smell. The washing and bleaching process do not eradicate all of the odor. Many customers mistake this odor for the product putrefying - but this is not the case. Please do not order this product unless you are familiar with it and its properties.
Chitterlings need to be washed thoroughly and any undigested food removed.
This is an unpleasant process and very time consuming.
Our Chitterlings and Maws are cleaned, rinsed, and bleached ready to use.
It is the time spent in preparation and not the specific value of the 'pipe' that makes chitterlings a more expensive white offal.
We have chosen an image of Chitterlings prepared in an Asian style of cooking - they look delicious!
