Hog Tails' Pork Cracklin - Fifth Ward, LA




--  Uncle Jesse cooks these golden nuggets up out back, behind his Hog Tails store in Fifth Ward (outside of Marksville).  They hold more promise than they deliver.  Though cooked fairly well, the bland seasoning did nothing to mask the less-than-fresh taste that punctuated these cracklings.  And for a review of their boudin look here: Hog Tails Boudin
