By Patty Timmens –
Vera and I had a lovely conversation. She grew up near Thirty and Vera’s mom was the sister of the mother of my aunt,
The recipe that Vera was seeking was for something known as Julitza or Zulica or any number of differently spelled names. I clearly remember
After the call from Vera I began calling the good cooks I know. Aunt Cele Budiselich was able to give me a good description and Lenora Burnett definitely knew what I was talking about.
--Wash thoroughly and cover with three quarts of water in a large kettle.
--Add 3 tsp. salt and boil on low or moderate heat until real tender.
All the recipes I found mentioned serving it with bread and butter. One said it was traditionally served at Easter with green onions to prevent a snake from biting you that year. This is one dish that I am NOT offering to taste test, thank you very much. But I certainly did enjoy the research and the call from Vera. You are on your own finding the pig’s feet.
