Strange! I have a good friend with family roots in Calibria, and he has often spoken of the special occassion roasting of lamb’s head, and the fact that the eye was considered the best part and reserved for the guest of honor. How much different can a lamb’s eye be from a pig’s?
I bet those pig eyes are a vital part of those 3 for $1 hot dogs at 7/11! jm
Interesting! I guess the reason we don’t use the eyes for anything is that there is only two of them and with usually a dozen people around, there would be a knockdown, dragout,fight for them,Or there might be some voodoo superstition thing that the old people believe in and we just didn’t want to take a chance.
