Pigtail recipe, here is a rather original and above all very affordable dish, the pigtail does not cost anything in supermarkets. Here the pig tails are cooked like pig’s trotters, the cooking is rather long but the pig tails are candied and the result is worth the effort. I used brick sheets to have a little crunch with my pigtails.
