You know…we’ve been using ham hocks for years to season greens, beans, peas, etc. We recently used our first Mulefoot Ham Hock from the two hogs we had processed. Please take a look at that hock – that is the hock sitting in water with an onion. Absolutely amazing…There is no comparison in the quality of this heritage local pork to what can be obtained from the grocery. We used this hock to season some local turnip greens that we harvested, and after much turnip green washing and picking, a few hours of simmering, and a little added spice…woooheee! Not even close to any we’ve made before. Just had to share that.
