Tips And Tricks

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can easily upgrade it or change it to your liking. Check out these valuable tips to learn how.

  • As pig trotters are high in collagen fat, you can get an incredibly rich and gelatinous broth from them.
  • Besides pork bones or pig trotters, you can also opt for chicken bones, beef bones, and various other vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes, leek, etc. It all depends on your preference and the dish you plan to make.
  • If you want to freeze the broth, make sure to leave about 2 inches of head space in the container since the liquid will solidify and expand once frozen.
  • You can roast the bones and vegetables at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes before using them to cook the broth to enrich their flavors.
