There is something so very comforting about Pig’s Feet Soup. Stories I have heard say that this was a dish new mom’s would be served to cleans their bodies and prepare them for motherhood.

I love this version with the familiar flavors of Japanese and Okinawan ingredients of miso, kombu and daikon.

  1. What type of kelp to get? My mother was from Okinawa and used long dried seaweed from there. It seemed to taste different from Japan.
