Wash the pork maw thoroughly in several changes of cold water. Drain thoroughly and place in a large pot with enough cold water to cover by 2 inches.

Add the salt, red pepper flakes, half of the celery, half of the onions, and half of the green peppers.

Heat to boiling, reduce the heat to simmering, and cook, covered, until tender. This could take from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the maw.

Wash the chitlins vigorously, in cold water, changing the water several times. Drain thoroughly. Refrigerate until needed.

Drain the cooked maw and reserving the cooking liquid.

Place the chitlins in a large pot and add enough of the hog maw cooking liquid to cover by 2 inches. Add the remaining celery, onions, and green peppers.

Heat to boiling, reduce the heat, simmer, covered, until tender, about 1 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, when the maw is cool enough to handle, cut it into 1-inch pieces.

When the chitlins are tender, stir in the maw pieces and simmer together a few minutes.

Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper flakes if needed. Serve hot.
