    2      quarts        water

    2      large         onion -- coarsely chopped
    2                    green bell pepper -- cored, seeded, and
                          -- coarsely chopped
      1/4  cup           crushed red pepper -- flaked
    3      tablespoons   salt
    1      tablespoon    freshly ground black pepper
    3      cups          barbecue sauce -- Sylvia’s own recipe
 
 1.  Wash the pigs' feet well.  Place them in a large pot and pour in the water.
 Add the vinegar, onions, green peppers, red pepper, salt, and black pepper. 
Heat to boiling over medium heat.  Reduce the heat to simmering and cook,
covered, until just about tender, about 2 1/2 hours.  Skim the surface and stir
the pigs' feet occasionally during cooking.
 
 2.  Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.  Remove the pigs' feet from the broth
with a slotted spoon.  (Reserve the broth for cooking greens or vegetables.) 
Arrange them side by side in 2 baking pans large enoughto hold them in a single
layer.	Spoon the barbecue sauce over them and bake 15 minutes.  Reduce the
heat to 300 degree F. and continue cooking until tender, about 35 minutes.

 NOTES : Pigs' feet are short on meat but long on flavor - and they're fun to
eat.  Tuck a napkin into your shirt, grab a stack for the table, and get into
the spirit.
