Guest Anonymous Posted December 22, 2008 Report Share Posted December 22, 2008 A suggestion for a variation on the tattie soup suggestions. Instead of Reestit Mutton, try a Smoked Pork Trotter. The Smoked Pork Trotter has a lot of fat on it, so best way is to boil it up, then remove from pan and allow fat to settle to the surface so you can skim most of it off. Then add vegetables, as already described, and boil until cooked. In the meantime remove the skin, fat, and bone from the trotter, and return meat to soup once veggies are cooked. Because of the size of the Pork Trotters, there tends to be more stock than is needed for a normal pan off soup, so freeze some of it for use as a stock later, it makes an excellent base for almost any kind of gravy. Best thing about Pork Trotters is that they are very cheap compared to most other cured meats. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
