Fresh Ham Hock

Our Ham Hocks are fresh and uncured. They are an unassuming piece of pork that, cooked correctly, adds a rich and meaty flavor to the dish. With minimal meat on the ham hock, it is typically used to enhance the flavors of soups, stocks/broth and beans and then removed.
Ham Hocks are also known as pork knuckles, because it is the bottom part of the pork leg. It consist of mainly bone, collagen and connective tissue making it a tough product, so it is ideal to cook it low and slow in order to optimize the full flavor profile. When cooked low and slow in a variation of liquid, the collagen and fat will dissolve and infuse into the liquid, giving you a nutritionally dense soup or stock.

All of our pork products come from Clear Creek Farms in Spalding, Nebraska. They are pasture raised and given no antibiotics or hormones. They eat a natural omnivore diet of certified organic local and seasonal fruits, nuts, vegetables, soy free, GMO free grains and barley that has been soaked and sprouted in whey. This is by far the best hog available.
