Pigs trotters - ideas please
I recently became the proud owner of half a pig, which is now residing happily in the freezer, ready to delight us over the coming months. The only thing that is a little thought provoking is what to do with the trotters. I've never used them before, and would appreciate your words of wisdom.
Many thanks BF

My mom and grandma used to make sült (headcheese...err...meat jello ).
Here's a recipe but google translate doesn't do so well.

This is more like what my family does...once again the translation is funny

The sült is good with a splash of vinager and/or a little horseradish also as after a shot of Vodka but maybe something like this is more practical.

Good luck I have never tried to cook them my self.
