Jamie Oliver's Ham Hock

Siouxchef May 1, 2012 03:50 PM

I'd like to recreate a dish I saw Jamie Oliver create on Jamie at Home probably years ago now. In it he started with a ham hock. In Great Britain would it be smoked or fresh?

    Jamie Oliver did several (perhaps a dozen) recipes using Ham Hock. Can you come a bit closer with the description of what you're looking for?

      I don't know about GB, but my butcher insists that a ham hock is smoked, and pork hock is fresh.

      What was the dish? Maybe that will clarify that what he meant.

        I'm sorry I don't know because I didn't see that show, I don't tape him much anymore.
        I'm thinking it's smocked because I've got a pkg of ham hocks in the freezer that I bought on sale and there are 2 in the package, they look smoked or cooked or something like that. They're not raw, so at least they've been 'something'.
        Thanks for reminding me of ham hocks because tomorrow night it's gonna be ham hocks and lima beans [which hubby won't eat] but he will eat white beans or great northerns. love how the house'll smell all day when cooking away.
