We will now talk in more detail about the easiest way to prepare them - how to cook your ears.

Before preparing them, the ears will have to be bought, which is not always so easy to do.

How to cook pig ears

  • First of all, the ears should be prepared for cooking. If necessary, they should be scorched, then scraped clean with a knife, washed and soaked overnight in cold water. If you have little time, it will be enough for a few hours.
  • After soaking, we finally cure our ears and rinse them. They should be smooth and white and pink.
  • Put the ears in the pot, pour water and put on the stove. When the water boils, reduce the heat and boil the ears with a barely noticeable boil.
  • An hour later, we add salt to taste the broth, an hour before the end of cooking, it will be possible to add a few peas of pepper, onion and carrot.
  • About how much to boil the ears, the opinions of experts differ somewhat. Some say that it will be enough for two and a half hours, others claim that at least four. Our advice is to check the readiness with a fork, then cut a piece and try, if it seems ready, it means it is.
