Ingredients

  • 1/2 pig’s head
  • 2 pig’s trotters
  • 10 sage leaves
  • Salt and pepper

Method

Use an unsalted head for this brawn, and clean the head and trotters carefully. Cover with cold water and add the sage leaves, salt and pepper. Boil gently for 4 hours. When cool enough to handle, take out the bones and chop up the meat. Mix the meat and the cooking liquid and pour into bowls to set. A pinch of ground nutmeg may be added to enhance the flavour. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or cover and freeze.
