Making Gelatin

game pie Sept 16 (4)

We had some pigs trotters in one of our freezers which we used recently to boil up to extract gelatin. We started with some stock we made from boiling up some game (pheasants, rabbit and squirrel). The trotters were placed in the stock, brought to the boil and then simmered for a couple of hours. A few pork bones were added as well.

Here is the resulting jelly:

Some of the gelatin was later reheated to liquify it and then poured into game pies.
