Ham knuckle

Ham knuckle comes from the ham shank and part of the leg.

Did you know?

  • Sold fresh or cured with the rind on, ham knuckle is a piece of bone-in meat that’s rich in collagen.
  • This economical cut is a delicious addition to stews, since the meat becomes very tender after it’s been braised or slow-cooked.
  • Ham knuckle is used in pig’s feet stew, a traditional Quebec recipe, because it contains more meat than the shank.



  • You can order ham knuckle at some butcher shops and specialty grocery stores.
