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.
