Ham Hocks and White Beans
This recipe for Ham Hocks and White Beans may take a couple of days, but it is worth the time and effort. Chilling the stock overnight allows you to skim the fat. Similarly, refrigerating the ham hocks makes separating the meat from the fat easier. Soak the beans overnight while the stock and hocks chill. Serve with rice for an authentic Louisiana-style meal.
Note that the beans should be moist, but not soupy.
