Black Vinegar Pork Trotter During Pregnancy Benefits

This Chinese tradition, called the magic of a month of rest, “sitting moon,” “sitting the month or Zuo Yuezi goes back for centuries. This month directly after childbirth is crucial for new mothers and their children. Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicinal theories, a woman can rebuild their health during this critical recovery time! All old ailments could be made new provided proper care.

Before pregnancy, my hands and feet would be super cold, especially during the winter months. Fast forward postpartum with proper postpartum confinement, I no longer experience those symptoms. I feel healthier and stronger albeit still very sleep deprived!

Women have a higher risk of developing osteoporosis and broken bones than men of the same age group because women have smaller and thinner bones than men. Between age 20 to 80, women lose one-third of the bone mineral density. So it is crucial to replenish lost vitamins and minerals early on.

Chinese Ginger Vinegar Benefits

The citric acid from the black vinegar aids metabolism and cholesterol reduction. Ginger helps digestion, improves the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body. Ginger also helps warm the body up, improve the spleen and digestive system, restores Qi and Yang energy, treats anemia, weakness, tiredness, and etc.

I’ve always loved this dish because of the ginger aroma and the sweet and sour taste. Black vinegar contains many essential amino acids. Amino acids help repair muscle tissue and nail growth. Black vinegar helps to balance our body’s PH levels by neutralizing lactic acid and alkalizing the blood. Every winter, I will eat a pot of Chinese Pig Knuckles with Black Vinegar and Ginger to help fight ageing.

How to Cook the Best Black Vinegar Pork Trotters

Making the best pig trotter stew with black vinegar and ginger is actually very simple. But it takes time. Usually, I will allow myself two days to prepare this. Some recipes online condense the process into one sitting, but this is one that I’ve grown with. 

My grandma also emphasizes using both young and old ginger. She says you want the hotness from old ginger and the aroma from young ginger. 

You will want to both slice and bruise the ginger. Bruise and pound the ginger with a meat mallet or the side of your blade.

Most people do not put red dates in their stew, but personally, I like to add a few for that extra sweetness. Chinese red dates have many health benefits such as Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium. Red dates are antioxidants and help stimulate the production of white blood cells. The iron and phosphorus in red dates also help prevent osteoporosis and anemia, both common in women.

I hope you like this recipe and enjoy some warmth during the cold winter months! How do you usually stay warm? Let us know in the comments below.

  • I love the tradition of a new mom nourishing herself for a month after birth. That should be universal! Maybe they can start handing this recipe out to new moms. 🙂 I’m sure many could benefit from all of the incredible healing properties.

    • I can’t agree more! The months after child birth is so critical to recover. Mom’s totally need the extra love and rest – even when they are so sleep deprived caring for the little one!!

  • I love this dish so much that I will happily eat it even though I’m done having kids! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
