<<< Simple rules... cook what you got. ;) The ingenuity and
inventiveness were great, and the pig feet really stumped
the cooks. Most used it for broth for their legumes.
Blaiddwyn made a try at a gelatin (Some kind of brawn i
assume, or pickled pig feet) but it wouldn't set, so they
used it... in the legumes! each team got the equivalent
of one trotter. >>>
So what other items did folks make out of the ingredients? I'd love to hear more about what was done, especially with the trickier items. I might have something in the Florilegium on pig trotters, but I don't know. I'd like to hear more about what worked, and maybe more important, what didn't work.
Was anyone on this list on one of the teams?
And for anyone here, what would *you* make given a couple of pig feet? Preferably, what period recipe? I have seen pig feet in my grocery store. However, so far I can still afford to buy better meat cuts...
