Gammon Hock comes from the bottom of the leg of a pig. You may have heard it referred to as the shank or pork knuckle. They are one of the less known elements of the pig, but form an essential cornerstone of British dishes when it comes to tasty recipe ideas. The hock can produce a glorious roast ham at Christmas because its fat produces a moist and tender dish. The hocks will need to be braised or roasted for an extended period of time to produce the very tender and succulent meat with the amazing flavours.
Our hocks are available in unsmoked or smoked.
Hocks are ideal for adding to recipes because of their intense flavour. As an added bonus, once you have used the hock for your main recipe you will be left with a great stock base for stews, soups and broth. So whether you are making a simple sandwich, or a more technical recipe, consider the hock. A very affordable option, handy to have on hand.
All our products are suitable for home freezing so you can pull out a pack for any day and defrost in a few hours. Try our Recipes for hocks for some great meal ideas.
