What Part of the Pig Do Pickled Pig Lips Come From?

Pickled pig lips are made from the tissue around the pig’s mouth that most closely correlates to the lips. Pickled pig lips are not widely available and are generally considered a Cajun delicacy. They can be purchased in parts of Louisiana and through various online stores.

Pickled pig lips are preserved in the same manner as other pickled products, with the lips placed and canned in a vinegar solution. This lends the pickled pig lips their briny taste. One popular way to prepare them is to roll them in crushed potato chips before eating. They are generally classified as a snack food.
