    • 2 tablespoons salt
    • 450ml (16 fl oz) wine vinegar

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr10min 

    1. In a large stainless steel pot, place pig's feet 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 feet to cover. Seal jars and refrigerate for at least 3 days to 1 week before eating.


    For best results, wait for at least 3 days before trying them.

    Serving Suggestion:

    Eat cold, or crisp skin under grill and serve with mustard.

    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).  -  15 Sep 2008
