Step 2: Preparing The Pig Ears

Firstly, you’ll need to preheat the oven to 300F.

Wash the pig ears with water to make sure that they are nice and clean. If the ears are dirty, use a scrubber to get off the dirt.

Pig ears usually come complete with the cartilage and bones that attach the ear to the head. Take your scissors, or a sturdy knife, and cut this part off.

<p>do you really need to cook for 4 hours?</p>
<p>I made these pig ears with raw pig ears from the store. I cooked them whole in the oven at 180F for two hours. I then cut them apart into about three pieces each ear and put them back in the oven at 350F for 15 minutes.. ..My dog loves them. I feel better giving him these, because I know there are no added ingrdients.</p>
<p>can these stay good for any length of time without being refrigerated?</p>
Temperature? Thnx.
Good idea!!!!<br /> I am really motivated to do it to my dog. It loves it.<br />
.&nbsp; Good job. I buy 'em whole by the dozen for my dogs and always wondered what was involved in preparing them.<br /> . <br /> .&nbsp; PS: Nice web site.<br />
i think that the commercial pig ears are made a little diferently b/c they don't get all puffy like mine do.<br /> thanks for the compliment on my website. i work at it very hard!
We buy these for my dog...maybe i'll try making them.<br />
Home made treats, what a great idea!&nbsp;I like that your dog had a diet that includes something you made.<br /> <br /> I'm thinking that this would smell something similar to a sunday morning fry-up, with only bacon, and four hours long.<br /> Seriously though, is there an overpowering odour du cochon?
because the ears are being baked, it smells like you're making a pig roast, only milder.&nbsp;the heat in the oven is pretty low, so there's no oil splatter. i didn't have a problem with any lingering odors.
