Quoting Blythe.:" what are maws? Can you get chitlins already cleaned? No way I could do that."
maws are the stomach. We eat it on sandwiches or put it in the greens with a little bit of fat to flavor it up. (As a family that owns a chain of soul food restaurants, our gatherings and dinners are about as southern as you get lol.)
You can buy them cleaned but I dont trust those. I clean the chitterlings myself, we are taught from childhood how to do it properly. And they really dont stink that bad unless you didnt clean them well. I think they are delicious, but that may be because thats what I was fed growing up.
