Default Ham hock uses question

Anyone have any other uses for extra ham hocks? I bought a four pack and only needed two for collards now I'm left with two extras. I have a Foodsaver to freeze if I have to but was just wondering what else others do with theres.

Just a reminder of what "they" call smoked and what "we" call smoked could be two different things. I most always do a second smoke on store bought hocks, shanks and even turkey legs that are sold as smoked. You will get a much more developed flavor for all your uses.



Oh yeah in addition to greens, beans, soups and stocks, you can braise them tender and serve as a main meat. One of my favorite uses is pork and sauerkraut. Start with a half rack of flavor smoked ribs, add taters onion and kraut, top with some double smoked hocks and slow cook a few hours.







All done......
