      I saw them yesterday at 1.99 but the sell by is today. I knew they'd be a manager special today. Where I live folks just don't buy them. Very rare to find fresh ones. I get a half a pig for summer and thats about the only time I see them. Smoked ones are easy to get.

      I was born at night but not last night.

              First post (yes I know I have homework to do)



              Meathead needs to come up with a recipe for what the Austrians call "stelze" and the Bavarians call "schweinshaxe"
              Probably better to find a Bavarian version, as the Austrians start by boiling the ham hock.

              I think it is a heart attack on a plate, but on occasion, it's a real treat.

              Best regards,
              Jim

                My paternal grandmother would take the fresh hocks, the day before, and blanch them off in a slow(200-225 ish) oven for several hours to render as much fat as she could. Then she would chill them overnight. The next day, she would braise them as usual. Since braising and "Q ing" are both low and slow, I'm sure your favorite pork techniques would work after blanching. However, DW brings up a good point. Beans. Save 1 hock for beans. By the way, save the fat as it makes killer brown roux. Just this old line dogs two cents.
