Par Boil For 15 Minutes (by: Annie Thompson)
I notice that on one par boils the pigs feet to remove sum and sediments, then wash scum off and clean the pot. Once par boiled put the pigs feet back in the pot with clean water. This time season the pigs feet and cook with any other ingredients you like without the scum cooking in the pot. Just the way I do it.

Oven Baked pig feet (by: Anonymous)
I bake mine completely. I wash and scrub them with a potato peeler first. Put them in a deep pan, like a roaster that you would cook a turkey in, add onion, celery, apple cider vinegar. Cover with foil, bake at 350, for 3-4 hours. Excellent.

Tangies Recipe (by: Neecee)
Tangie's recipe from Maryland was awesome. I didn't have any beer but all the other ingredients and cooking methods made the pig feet delicious and not greasy. My friend who popped in for dinner who turned up their nose at pig feet ate some and thought they were delicious!

Baltimore, Md. pig feet  (by: Tangie) 
First I wash the pig feet really well. My mother would the pig feet over the flame on the stove to burn any hair, I use a razor.
Next in a big pot place the pig feet, then add beer I use a quart size, then add old bay season salt pepper ( black, and hot red pepper), cider vinegar cook on high for about 1 hour, then lower to medium keep a eye out so they do not run out of juice.
A good tip is use a good big pot, the cheap one will cause them to stick cook until done. Next transfer pig feet to a baking pan with a small amount of the juice place in oven on 350 basting until they are shining and tender. You can add more old bay seasoning to taste. Enjoy.
