My favorites are greens or any kind of dried beans. Save the bones for stock, put the meat back in the pot.

Ham hocks are a natural for sauerkraut.


This recipe is close to how I make this dish:

go for the boiled dinner - cabage potatoes carrots onion etc
love in the scallop potatoes too.
I like to boil them up and use for sandwhiches. best tasting
I save the broth from boiling them, freeze it 1/2 cup -put into freezer bags and use it for flavoring soup or lil in cooking veggies.

note on freezing bags: I put in the bags - get all the air out - and then lay flat on a cookie sheet till frozen - they take up less room then plastic containers.

Are you related to Aunt Lucy? She always said it was a most proper thing to have!

Not that I know of, but it is a NOLA tradition I believe.

Or put in containers, pop out the next day and put in a bag or several bags. I like to freeze in containers that will hold 2 cups of liquid, perfect for rice.
