    that recipe looks tasty. I have never seen pigs feet in any other form beyond pickled (which i've never been brave enough to try).

    i would actually try cooking them but i can't recall ever having seen them at WF or any other place.

    I just begged 4 from a local butcher; I have no pride but at least they won't go to waste :-) Yay urban gathering.

    They are boiling as I type - each with a slightly different flavour combo. This should leave me swimming in pig jelly until Yule at least.

    Pig foot goodness - carraway and cinnamon flavoured jelly. Must stop eating it though .....

    Toss them into any broth you are making and you will get really thick gelatin. If you are able to get the edible chunks out of your broth, you can eat them, but generally they'll somewhat fall apart in the slow-cooker.

    We used to eat pig's feet when growing up. They're delicious if cooked properly
    I'm not sure on the exacts, but I do know that they have a certain.. smell to them that my mom says you have to cook out of them. She boils them for a while and then finishes them in the oven w/ whatever seasoning she uses (usually a red pepper paste seasoning).

    This is what I did:
    The Primal Gardener: What an Offal Day (Part 2-Trotters)

    I saved the bones and leftovers and made stock-talk about gelatin-y!!! If I did it again I would bone out the trotters before cooking, but I hate eating around small bones (which may be why I hate fish so much). I would probably roast them longer as well, to render off more fat and get more crispy skin. They were VERY tasty.

    You could always do a primal version of crubeens.

    First boil them for an hour and then toss the water completely. Then add more hot water to just cover them, then add chopped celery, onions, peppers, dry herbs, salt and pepper and cook until they are falling off the bone. Make sure to salt the water well while cooking. Then serve them with some vinegar and hot sauce to taste and they will be delicious. This is a southern recipe my mom has always made. Guess you'll have to leave out the cornbread.
