I guess this is a medium size.
Cover with water. We used RO water.
Salt to taste.
3 Whole chili peppers. (Optional)
Bring to a boil and simmer until the meat falls off the bone.
The meat pulled back from the bone. I started chopping at the fat and meat. ~ 4 hours.
Clean the meat from the bones.
Take the loose chiles out while you can find them.
We used a whole organic cabbage, bunch of carrots and two onions.
Remove the outer leaves and stem, cut into 6 - 8 pieces.
Chop up onions and leave carrots in large chunks. Simmer.
This is when to add a sweet potato. We put some pepper in too.
Leave it in large chunks. If you wast to add cinnamon stick, now is a good time. I put the additional chilies and cloves in a tea bag to find easy later. You could use cheesecloth tied up.
Takes 8 - 10hours, but worth the time. Yummmmm!
