How to make it

  • Put pigs feet into 2 quarts of water and bring to a boil. Throw away water. Wash off feet in cold water.
  • Add another 2 quarts of cold water and the onions, carrots, garlic, paprika, salt and mixed spice.
  • NOTE: If you like a very firm jelly or aspic, add some veal bones when you cook the feet.
  • Cook for about 3 hours or until feet become tender. Keep skimming the water to keep the broth clear.
  • Put feet into a serving dish that will fit into the refrigerator. Strain the broth and then pour over the feet, and chill. Sprinkle with some paprika.
  • Serve with a good hearty bread, pickled peppers, good German beer, and a small decanter of good vinegar to sprinkle on feet if desired.

    My Hungarian parents gave me all kinds of fantastic meals. The pig's gel was one of my favorites and I never appreciated how fortunate I was.
