Oh, now don't go getting all squeamish on me. Would it be easier to digest (mentally, at any rate) if I referred to jellied pigs feet as trotters in aspic? That's what the English call them. Jellied pigs feet, jellied calves feet and headcheese are considered delicacies to many Eastern Europeans. And, quite frankly, don't knock them until you've tried them.

Believing in nose-to-tail eating out of necessity, peasants took the least-prized parts of the animals they raised and slaughtered, and turned them into delicious versions of the dishes their aristocratic neighbors ate. Case in point -- breast of duck meat in aspic became jellied pigs feet, etc. Pluck up your courage and give this Polish Jellied Pigs Feet Recipe (zimne nogi) a try!
