    Details

    An old fashioned, yet succulent and full flavoured Ham Hock. Taken from the ankle and calf region of the pig, our ham hocks are incredibly meaty, full of flavour and excellent value for money. Leaving the skin on helps to keep them tender while cooking.

    Cooking suggestions:

    Ingredients:

    2 ham hocks 2 clementines, halved ½ tsp ground allspice ¼ freshly grated nutmeg 1 star anise 2 bay leaves 2 tbsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp black treacle 3 tbsp soft light brown sugar

    Method:

    The day before, soak the ham hocks in water overnight in the fridge, to draw out some of the salt.

    The next day, drain the hocks and pat them dry. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Mix the allspice, nutmeg and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper together and rub into the hocks. Put them in a deep roasting tin with the clementines, cut-side up . Tuck the star anise and bay around the hocks, and pour in 100ml water. Cover the tin in foil and roast for 3 hrs. Remove the tin from the oven and increase the heat to 180C/ 160C fan/gas 4. Unwrap the tin and drain off the liquid. Squeeze the juice from the clementines over the hocks and return the juiced halves to the tin. Mix the Dijon, treacle and sugar in a bowl and paint half the glaze all over the hocks. Return to the oven for 15-20 mins, turning and brushing with the remaining glaze every 5 mins until the hocks are burnished and caramelised in places. Shred or slice the meat and eat warm or cold.
