Ingredients

Directions

Boil the pig tails in 2 quarts water for 1 1/2 hours, changing the water every half hour until the pig tails are soft and most of the salt has been removed. 

Boil the split peas and ham hocks in 2 quarts water until the split peas are soft, about 1 hour. Remove the ham hocks from the pot. Add the onions and peppers to the split peas and season with the salt, black pepper and oregano. Boil until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Add the softened pig tails and the butter. Let cook for another 15 minutes until done. Serve over steamed white rice.
