ISO Ham Hocks not the fresh pork hocks

I haven't been able to find ham hocks recently; anybody know of any place around NDG/Westmount that still carries them? I have a hankering for simmered falling-off-the-bone ham hock with cabbage,potatoes, carrots and celery poached in the ham broth.

  1. I would try the Atlantic meat market on cote des neiges. They have the best ham and a lot of other delicious meats, smoked salmon and prepared foods.

        Quick question ..... Where is the Atlantic Meat Market on Cote des Neige ????

        Thanks !!!!

          Boucherie Atlantique at 5060 Côte-des-Neiges (corner Queen Mary), closed Sundays.

    1. I ended up buying a smoked pork hock/schweinehaxen at Atlantique but haven't cooked it yet. It's not quite a ham hock like I used to have as a child, which was the actual nob end of a whole ham but I guess it'll do. The hock feels like the flesh is fairly raw rather than firm like an old-fashioned salted ham. Before you ask, we used to buy our hams from a local smoke house and the hams used to hang from beams in the rafters and we bought our bacon from there too. I guess I'll make it German or Austrian style.
