Place the pigtail in a large bowl or container and cover it with water. Let it soak for at least 24 hours, changing the water several times. This process helps to rehydrate the pigtail and reduce its saltiness.Boiling: After soaking, transfer the pigtail to a large pot and cover it with fresh water. Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour. This initial boiling helps to further reduce the salt content and begin the tenderizing process.Additional Soaking: Once the pigtail has been boiled, drain the water and place it back into the container. Fill the container with fresh water and let it soak for another 24 hours. This step helps to continue removing salt and further tenderize the meat.Cooking: After the second soaking, the pigtail is ready to be cooked in your desired recipe. It can be added to stews, soups, rice dishes, or prepared as a standalone dish. Follow the specific recipe instructions to incorporate the salted pigtail into the dish and cook until the meat is tender and flavorful.Remember to taste the pigtail during the cooking process to ensure it has reached the desired level of saltiness. If it still tastes too salty, you can continue soaking or boiling it until the desired level of salt is achieved.It's worth noting that the exact preparation method can vary based on personal preferences and cultural traditions. Adjustments may be needed depending on the specific brand and salt content of the pigtail you are using.Did You Know?The use of salted pigtail can be traced back to the era of transatlantic slave trade when African slaves were brought to the Caribbean and other regions.
