It is not necessarily Cajun... We only wasted the squeal. The intestines were turned inside-out and washed in the creek, then boiled for sausage casings. Souse was made from snouts ears, eyelids, etc. Pigs feet and tail were pickled. The fat was boiled down for lard and the resulting pork rinds were ground and put into corn bread that we called "Cracklin Bread". Good stuff except for the souse. Even the heads were cracked open and brains and eggs were a delicacy (but not for me LOL).

Tobacco is still grown around here but just not as much as in prior times. In the flatter areas, I am seeing large acreage of corn nearly as far as one can see. The hill country (where small tobacco bases could be grown in the bottom land) has just returned to woods and forests or pasture land.
Many of the old tobacco barns are in bad shape and falling down and the lumber being reused such as I have done with my homestead addition interior walls. Some of that lumber is so old and seasoned that it cannot be nailed without pre-drilling.
Just last night on the way out to dinner with my friend, I saw several acres of what looked like Morning Glory blooms. I did not understand that unless it was some kind of winter cover crop or something for cattle feed.
The boards making up an old dilapidated barn can brign some big money.

August 14, 2013 - STRANGE THINGS AFOOT ON OUR SUN: A coronal hole has formed in the sun's northern hemisphere, and it is spewing solar wind into space. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the UV-dark gap during the early hours of August 14th. In the image, above, the sun's magnetic field is traced by white curving lines. The coronal hole is where those magnetic field lines have opened up, allowing solar wind to escape. A stream of solar wind flowing from this coronal hole is expected to reach Earth on August 16-18. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of polar geomagnetic storms when the windy stream arrives.

When I was about 10 or so I opened grandmas freezer and saw a large paper bag. Curious person that I am I opened it. OMG !! A big hog head!! Snout, ears, hair bristles! All there!! I shut that freezer lid FAST!
I think she finally threw it away as we NEVER had any thing called souse or head cheese!

Missed that. And fire swirls would sure be a sight to see! But I made a point to watch those meteor showers. Last night I tried it again for a short time--saw several but the planes circling for a landing with their "headlights" on bright and the chill in the air soon discouraged me and I went in and hit the hay.

If you have ever bought pickle loaf, vienna sausages, potted meat, bologna, or some hot dogs; then you most likely ate some hog heads.

"AIN'T NONE OF ME TRY'N IT NEITHER!!!!"

But I gotta say this. One time the Belle and I were walking (best way), just cruise'n New Awlins and we walked into a large, open-like bar and restaurant. We walked up to the beautiful bar and I looked at the menu. It was all Greek to me but I did order some kind of dark, ugly, thick, monster look'n soup that I thought something was gonna jump out of it at me! Man was it ever SOOOoo very good. The bar keep claimed that it had some kind of 'gator tail sausage and I don't remember what else in it. But the next morning late, we walked back and I got another bowl of it. She had noth'n to do with it.

Now Ancient....I've been eat'n a can of Vienna's, cheese and crackers once in a while for the last 40 years. Jeremy (my son) and I took some back to his cabin on the Wolf River several weeks ago. But you didn't make it sound too good in your post!

All my post was meant to say or to imply was that chickens are not all boneless breasts, beef is not all steak and ground chuck, and pork is not all ham and bacon. And we have all probably eaten some of the less desirable parts but when prepared properly, it can be quite good. In fact, I love my bologna and vienna sausages and my leather boots.

Fortunately potted me is ground so well. Lol. My granny ate souse and Step grandpa ate pig's feet. Me, i just ate their pickled eggs.
Hope everyone is enjoying the weather. Haven't seen many birds lately. Just mild colds
including a mild cough. Have car problems here they're exhaust or fuel related I believe. Thanks to a loving parent; I'll get some assistance.
Blessings to All, a lot to do today.
