  • About


  • 1 pig’s head
  • 2 pig’s trotters
  • 2 lb. onions


You really need a very large saucepan or boiler for this brawn. Have the pig’s head split, the eyes, offal and brains removed. Rub the pieces and the trotters with crushed salt, and arrange closely in a large basin. Sprinkle with more salt. Leave for 2 days. Wash well in cold water, and place in a large saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to the boil, skim well, and simmer gently for about 3 hour
