Folks ask if they can use smoked sausage, andouille sausage, ham, smoked butt and all kinds of other meats. The answer is, sure - its a free country. This recipe will also work with venison. But you will not truly experience Creole cooking if you do not use 'Pickle Meat', especially pickled pork, when you make Red Beans to go with the Rice. There truly is no substitute for pickle meat. Folks have been pickling meats for generations, and it is nothing to fear. What I have here is a recipe for a pickle pork that will keep in the refrigerator a pretty long time - even longer, if you want to 'can' it and seal it in jars until you use it. Plan to make this at least 4 days before you want to add it to your red beans recipe. This is a basic recipe, so increase the ingredients for the amount of meat you will pickle. REMRMBER _ this meat is pickled, so expect a pickled taste profile. You may want to taste the meat before you add it to a cassolet, cassarole or any bean dish. Some folks will want to rinse the meat under running water to diminish the pickle aspect - the product will still be delectible. Review the photos for a visual progress guide & tips.
