A few years ago we came across a recipe for "Black Bacon" from the West Country, rumoured to be a very old recipe it uses a brine made with black treacle and nutmeg for a beautiful sweet note. Legend has it, this was the the base for the famous Dukeshill Ham Co cure, but that's just between me and you! The cure is made using sea salt and unrefined sugar as well as the treacle and nutmeg. We use this brine to then cure our Treacle Cured Hams but once they come out of the brine it seems a real shame the pour 20ltrs of gorgeous treacly brine down the drain so we had an idea! With a little readjustment of salt to add back what the hams had taken from the brine it was good to use again and we decided to pop some pork hocks in it to cure, creating Treacle Cured Ham Hocks! Perfect for soup making, terrines or simply enjoy it cooked and shredded from the bone, don't forget though to save the fibula bone because it makes an excellent mustard spoon!
Minimum 800gm net weight hock, supplied raw.
