How to Make BOILED PIGS HEAD

Step-by-Step

  1. To boil pig head: Wash head thoroughly in plenty of tepid water. Take out the brains and throw them away. Cut out the little veins and all the splinters of bone. Wash the head in all parts, with plenty of salt, thoroughly cleansing it of all blood.
  2. Lay the head in pickle juice (with all other ingredients listed) for 3 days (hope you can wait that long).
  3. When the head is salted, put it into a saucepan with cold water enough to cover it and bring it to a boil. When it boils, turn down the heat and allow it to simmer gently for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, according to the size and age of the pig.
  4. Boiled pigs head is eaten with boiled rabbit or with veal or with onion sauce.
