Pickled pig lips are a common food item in parts of southeast America, particularly Louisiana where pickling is ingrained into the local culture. Pickling pig meat has been in vogue in the Deep South for more than a century now. Economical picklers from past generations put to use previously disregarded meat products such as feet, lips and tails, and the idea of pickling them caught on. The pickled meat is usually eaten straight from the jar or used in salads, rice and bean dishes.
