Trotters (edible)

Trotters: A search of esoteric recipes will turn up sheep trotters or pig trotters or even cow trotters. Unfortunately, they are just what you feared: feet. Trotters are usually boiled before being included a such delicacies as curry or stew.
We sent up some roasted meat, a trotter, and a little of the wine to the healer by way of payment for the herbs.
The we sat under the stars warming our stomachs with sweet roasted meat and picking the flesh off the trotters steeped in the rich blood gravy.
