How to Cook Chitterlings

How long do I cook chitterlings?

Chitterlings, or the small intestines of a freshly slaughtered pig, are generally cut into 2-inch segments, covered with water, brought to a boil, covered, and then reduced to a simmer for three to four hours.

You can add a garlic clove; a little salt and pepper; spices, such as thyme, clove, mace, and allspice; a bay leaf; a bit of onion; and a couple tablespoons of white wine vinegar to the liquid to round out the flavor.
