Scottish Smoked Ham Hock (approx 700g)

Recent years of austerity and the rise of humble food at exorbitant prices in restaurants have seen ham hock rise up from the culinary graveyard. The whole point of the pig in culinary history has been its ability to yield up meat that can be preserved better than any other. Hence the proliferation of hams and cured sausages across the world.

Our ham hock is cured in Ayrshire of Scottish pork. Ham hock needs to be cooked low and slow, preferably in a big pan of water so you get wonderful jellied stock as well as soft shreddable meat. Make a big pot of peas and ham for a rainy Saturday lunch, with a bit left over for a sandwich with crisp mustardy piccalilli.

Cooking Tips

Ham hock is having a bit of a moment as a filling for premium sandwiches with piccalilli or shredded into various creative dishes. It really is worth the hype; deeply flavoured soft shreddable meat like ham squared is not to be dismissed lightly. Being the part of the pig that no-one wants it is incredibly cost-effective too. You can slow roast ham hocks either in their incarnation as the final dish or for shredding but why on earth would you pass up the chance for all that lovely ham stock? By boiling up the ham hocks for a few hours in a pan of water with aromatic herbs and sweet root vegetables you get the basis for pea and ham soup or proper mushy peas to serve with pie; and that's just the classics. Toss the shredded meat into soups salads sandwiches or try our ham hock recipes. Shredded ham hock is superb piled on top of eggs Benedict for breakfast.
