What is a hog maul (or maw)and what do I do with it?
Hog Maul, also spelled Maw in some text, is pig stomach. There is a great website which shows what to do with chitterlings (intestines) and maws (stomachs). You can access it at http://www.chitterlings.com/chitterling.html. We don't have any recipes for this under-utilized cut. Most of the recipes that were found online are called Stuffed Pig?s Stomach, but it may also be also called Dutch Goose. Many of the recipes vary in flavor, depending on the type of sausage used or other seasonings.
