Mustard Greens & Tasso Potlikker with Noodles
Potlikker is the magic stuff that forms in a pot of veggies (usually greens) cooked with the right kind of flavoring. Folks build their potlikker with all kinds of combinations of flavor; the keys are depth and harmony. Traditionally, potlikker is sopped up with cornbread at the end of the meal, but in this version we have a special treat for you: A delicious potlikker, flavored with Spotted Trotter tasso (heavily-spiced ham smoked over pecan wood) used as a cooking liquid for egg noodles. The result is an incredibly delicious, brothy pasta dish. If you have some pepper sauce, go right ahead and sprinkle that on top.
