Studenina

Studenina or Pickled Pig's Feet was strictly a cold weather food when I was growing up in Pennsylvania. We butchered our own hogs and Mother would incorporate not only the feet but parts of the head into this.

After cooking this "soup" for x hours she would pour it into dishes, each with a supply of the meat, and let it jel over night on the porch. We didn't have refrigeration but it would be cool enough to keep on the porch.

As it jelled, the fat would set firmly on the surface. Scrape the fat off, pour some vinegar on the jel and began some really high class dining. I wish I had some right now!
