    Ask your butcher for some fresh pig's trotters and try this simple, Asian-inspired recipe for pickling them! For best results, wait for at least 3 days before trying them. Pig's feet are a delicacy in parts of Ireland, Germany and many Asian countries too. You will need two sterilised 1-litre screw-top jars.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 6 pig's trotters
    • 1 onion
    • small handful peppercorns
    • 2 fresh red chillies
    • 2 tablespoons salt
    • 2 cups wine vinegar

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:3hours  ›  Ready in:3hours10min 

    1. In a large stainless steel pot, place pig's trotters and enough water to cover. Boil for 2 or 3 hours or until tender; drain. Rinse in hot water to remove excess fat. Remove as many bones as you can.
    2. Put 1 chilli and 3 trotters in each one litre jar. In a separate bowl, mix salt and vinegar together. Pour vinegar mixture over pig's trotters to cover. Seal jars and refrigerate for at least 3 days to 1 week before eating.
    3. Eat cold, or crisp skin under grill and serve with mustard.

    I've never eaten pig's feet but I made this for my husband and he loves it! He says he wants me to keep this on hand at all times, especially since it must sit in the vinegar for at least 3 days. Served it with limes - 29 Sep 2008

    i don't remember a time when i tasted a foot of a pig more delicious. might i suggest enhancing this family favourite by creating a "pig-in-the-blanket" with the pickled pig foot. i recommend using wholemeal bread as the "blanket." it is simple and delicious, and the wholemeal cuts down on the carbs (vs. regular white bread). - 29 Sep 2008
