Organic Pork Trotters

Pig's rich, gelatinous and gloriously bones are an old fashioned staple to make broth.

Woefully under-rated, organic pork trotters are an old-fashioned favourite that's prized in many cuisines around the world. They're having a slow revival in the UK, but even then they remain very much a marginal cut. Given how thrifty and versatile they are, we think they're definitely worth rediscovering! Packed with gelatin, trotters are meatier than you might think. When slow-cooked they'll yield tender meat, hearty stock and lots of jelly – perfect for use in pies and terrines.  

Pigs grown in an organic system are some of the healthiest you'll find. As they live free-range lives in sociable family groups and enjoy an organic diet, they're untainted by chemicals or growth promoters. Medication is kept to a minimum on organic farms, so can be certain your pork bones come from a pig that's never been routinely dosed with antibiotics. A natural, outdoor lifestyle means our pigs develop robust immune systems, and that benefit is passed to you when you make bone broth. At The Organic Butchery, we believe in using the most sustainable methods possible whilst organically rearing our animals; we aim to use as much of the carcass as possible, to reduce wastage.

As a food culture, we've grown used to discarding or ignoring the parts of a carcass that we find icky. In fact, some bits have fallen so far out of favour or are considered so distasteful that you're unlikely to even see them. At The Organic Butchery we believe that every part of a carcass, especially the offal, should be utilised – out of respect for the animal and in recognition of the work that's gone into rearing it. And what we definitely shouldn't ignore is the fact that offal represents some of the best nutrition we can get from meat. All that gelatin in trotters? It's a versatile ingredient we should definitely get reacquainted with.

Your organic pork trotters will be clean when you receive them. To extract the gelatin, simply add the trotters to a pan with onion, celery, carrots and herbs, cover with water, bring to the boil then simmer for a good few of hours. Skim off any scum that gathers and keep the water topped up. When the trotters are tender, remove them and the veg from the stock. Strain the liquid through a fine seive and leave to cool. The fat will rise to the surface and the jelly will set. Store it in jars or freeze in silicon moulds for use in pies and stews or as an ingredient in gravies. Don't forget to pick the succulent meat from the cooked trotters – it's particularly excellent in a coarse terrine, alongside some of the jelly, of course.
