About this recipe: 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.


Serves: 6 

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

  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.
