Pig’s trotters, also known as pettitoes, are often used to make soup stocks and sauces, as they have great flavour and are very high in gelatin and collagen. They are also served whole in a number of traditional recipes from around the world.
Regardless of how you plan to use your pig’s trotters, you will need to braise them slowly at low temperature for a number of hours, until the meat is falling off the bone. At that point, they can be served in a number of ways, including being pickled in brine. Or for a rich stock, you can continue to simmer them for up to 24 hours.
Our organic pig’s trotters are butchered from our certified organic hogs — grown without antibiotics or synthetic hormones, free-range on organic pastures. They live a stress-free life, with no cages or crowding. We believe that the extra time and care we take to raise our hogs results in the best trotters you can find anywhere.
