This traditional dish is always brought to the table for guests when they visit a new mother and her latest addition to the family.

Fiery hot chunks of yellow ginger make this the perfect dish for the one month 'confinement period', post baby birth - providing for a warm and comfortable tummy.

And when you find out exactly how easy it is to make, you'll be rolling over in laughter that you didn't try it sooner!

Here's a quick summary video:

  • Yellow Ginger

  • Black Sweet Rice Vinegar (this is the key ingredient - best not to substitute it with normal black vinegar

  • Pigs Trotters

  • Rock Sugar or Sugar (to taste)

  • Peel and cut ginger into big chunks and smash.

  • Add to pot

  • Add Pigs Trotters

  • Add equal parts of water and Sweet Black Vinegar - enough to cover the trotters

  • Boil till meat is soft but yet has a little bite

  • Add sugar a little at a time and taste along the way - this is only if you like the dish a little sweeter.

And that's it!
