Ham Hocks - where did they go?

gttahaveit | Sep 7, 2012 06:29 PM

Used to be I could go into just about any grocery store here in the GTA and be able to get a smoked ham hock - I believe made by Brandt's. Just the right thing for a pot of beans. A smoked turkey leg, also by Brandt's worked well too, and was easy to find. With the weather turning nasty tomorrow, I thought I'd make a pot of bean soup. A search of stores (Loblaws, Queen/Portland, Nofrills; Parliament/Spruce; Metro, Church/Gould, and Loblaws MLG) turned up nothing! I ended up with a small slab of toucinho from the NF's. Good, but not the same. The MLG Loblaws had smoked turkey thighs, but at $16 for a not very big piece, I said no thanks.

Any sightings, fellow CH'ers?
