Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Moo & Oink is proud to announce the return of Moo & Oink Pork Chitterlings. The product is now on the shelves of grocery stores in the Chicagoland area just in time for the holidays. Chitterlings are commonly referred to as chits or chitlins.
“We know Moo & Oink Chitterlings were very popular in Chicago and have been missed over the last year,” said David L. Van Kampen, president and COO of Moo & Oink. “We took the time to perfect our process and can now offer chits for the holidays.”
Moo & Oink Chitterlings are pig intestines that are double-washed, packed in water and frozen. Chits are most typically prepared by cleaning and rinsing and then boiled or stewed for several hours. Chits sometimes are battered and fried after the stewing process and commonly are served with cider vinegar and hot sauce as condiments.
Moo & Oink Pork Chitterlings can be found at the following grocery stores in the Chicagoland area:
- 30 Jewel-Osco locations
- 13 Ultra Food locations
- 3 Leamington Foods locations
- Gary County Market
- One Stop
- Park Packing
Enjoyed in most pork-eating countries around the world, in the United States chits are a Southern or an African American culinary tradition. Considered a delicacy in South Carolina and other parts of the South, an annual “Chitlin Strut” in Salley, South Carolina, drew 70,000 people last year. It is estimated that 128,000 pounds of chits have been consumed during the festival’s history since it began in 1966. Although frequently served with rib tips or fried chicken, many families especially enjoy chits for special occasions such as Thanksgiving and/or Christmas.
