Cuban’s love eating pig’s feet and have several different recipes for cooking them. This is one of the more popular ways. Start by boiling the pig’s feet together with the garbanzos in boiling water. You may want to leave this overnight. Add potatoes, beans, garlic, vegetables and spices and cook for a further half-an-hour. Serve as a broth/soup with mashed potato.
