Ham hock terrine


Recommended Posts

If you are looking for tasty cooked smoke ham you might try using smoked ham shank instead of hocks. Better meat and more of it after simmering to make a broth for two or three hours, or whatever you are making that needs the flavor of smoked meat. From one large shank, after cooking, I can get a couple of cups of torn meat without gristle or fat. In my experience the meat from a hock is meager and not as succulent and the broth it results in is the same, but fattier.
