Crubeens (from Irish: crúibíní) are an Irish food made of boiled pigs' feet. They are traditionally eaten using one's fingers. First the pigs' feet are boiled in some water with vegetables and herbs, such as onions, carrots, bay leaves, parsley, peppercorns, cloves, thyme and/or others. Then the crubeens are dried and served hot or cold. Sometimes before serving the boiled pigs' feet are dipped in beaten eggs with bread crumbs and cooked in oil until crispy. It takes a lot of time to cook, but are very tasty.
