Express Stewed Pigs Feet

My wife came across some pigs feet in vinegar the other day at Meijer's and immediately the thought of making some kind of pigs feet stew came to my mind. What more, it was only 99c a bottle. Not! We later found out both of use read the wrong labels. They were $5 for 2. But we were craving for the stew so badly we bit the bullet.

1 Bottle of Pigs Feet in vinegar.
1/4 cup of Chinese Sweet and Dark Vinegar (甜醋)
6 pieces of rock sugar
2 table spoon of sugar
2 stocks of green onions
small piece of ginger ( I didn't weight it, but a piece half the size of an egg should be fine)
1/2 cup of water

As the title said, this is an "express" dish. Just put everything in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Then turn turn the flame and simmer for 1/2 at least. The pigs feet are already very soft, and cooked so we just need sometime for them to absorb the ingredients. To make the sauce a little thick, I chose the express route again by adding some corn starch pre-mix in a little hot water. This bottle was enough to make a small bowl in the picture. My wife managed to steal a couple of pieces before I could take the picture!
