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.

    "Perez" is your married name then? This seems more Spanish than Romanian.

    Great that you enjoy cooking as most Romanians that I know don't cook, and refuse to cook. If they cook, they just grill it without spicing it up.

    Love Romanian wine brewed on the farm (no sugar) as well as their vodka "bolinka" (sp?)
