3. Remove pork hocks from the liquid; let cool. Clarify the bouillon by pouring it over a strainer lined with cheese cloth. Measure the volume of bouillon with a measuring cup.  For each 1 cup of bouillon, add 3 grams of gelatine. For example, I had 2 cups of bouillon, so I added 6 grams of gelatine. Stir well to dissolve gelatine.
