• 4 pigs feet, halved
  • 2 pork shanks
  • 1 well browned onion
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 sprig parsley,chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5 whole peppercorns
  • 5 whole allspice
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar


Wash the meat, and place in a large pot, cover with water, boil, and skim what rises to top. Add vegetables and spices, simmer for 4 hours until meat comes off bones. Let cool, strain, remove bones and spices. Return meat to liquid, add salt and vinegar and pour into a loaf pan. Put in refrigerator, and scrape off fat as it will rise to top. This can be garnished with cooked carrot slices and hard boiled egg slices. I find a light vinegar based dressing very tasty on top.
