    I’ve never seen a pigtail for sale before, but I suppose it would taste the same as the hock? This looks positively yummy!

    Yes sometimes I add pumpkin. It’s more or less optional. Good luck in your cooking adventure tomorrow. :-)

    Hello Felix…….I am looking at all of your recipes and I must say that you are good! But what I’d like to know is how to cook the peas alone with out the pig tail… mom is leaving me for christmas till the new year so I have a house to feed and like some I was never there when she cooked….:)
    Seasons Greetings!!!!!

    That is easy…Just don’t add the pigtail to the peas at the end. Good luck with your cooking:-)

    Felix if you don’t have a pressure cooker, should you soak the lentils overnight? and then boil them till they burst?

    That would work as well. It would take a lot longer so try to start “bursting” your lentils some time before.
