I love all bean based soups, and most of the recipes I've seen & tasted seem to include a smoked ham hock kind of product. Does anyone know where I can purchase a ham hock, or a small bone-in ham type of product in Toronto...preferably in the midtown area? I've very close to the Whitehouse meats on Bayview, but they didn't have anything like that when I went, nor did Loblaws/Dominion etc.
Also, is a ham hock high fat? I'd love a way to add a smokey, porky flavour to bean soups without having to resort to something very fatty (ie. sausuages, bacon, chorizo etc).
