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

And that's it!
