Recipe for Cantonese Pork feet in Ginger Vinegar

jeannieh20 Aug 27, 2008 09:26 AM

My grandmother has arthritis and has been told that this dish would help. This is a traditional dish for women who've just given birth. Does anyone or their mother's have a good recipe for this dish? I know it's labour intensive but am willing to make it for my grammy and save some for myself if it's a good recipe.

Thanks in advance.

    Ignore the name, it's not Sweet and Sour like the red sticky stuff with pineapple and maraschino cherries, but I think this is one version of what you're looking for.....I haven't tried this, but I just Googled for "pigs feet black vinegar".....


    I think if you browse some of the Chinese cookbooks, you'll find it, particularly those that deal with Chinese holidays and events....I don't see the particular book that I'm thinking of right now, or I'd give you the author's name....

        Grace Young in Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen has a good recipe for it.
