How to Clean Pig's Ears

Recently I stopped by Hurd Farm and left with a bag of 4 pig's ears. Thank you Steve for the treats! 

Before cooking pig's ears it is important to clean them thoroughly. The last thing I want to do is nibble on dirty ears! Luckily the cleaning process is simple and requires just a little time. Take a knife and scrape the entire ear and scrub well with salt and vinegar. Once done give the ear a good rinse with water. Boil the cleaned ears in water for about 5 minutes. Remove and let them cool before handling. Use kitchen tweezers to pluck away any visible hair. Scrape the ears again and rinse well. Now they are ready to be used in cooking.
