DIRECTIONS

  • The day before you want to use this: in a 6-quart slow cooker combine water, ham hocks, carrots, celery, onion, thyme, bay leaves, and garlic. Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 4 to 6 hours.
  • Remove the hocks.
  • Remove meat from the pork hocks; coarsely chop (you should have about 2 cups) and set aside.
  • Discard bones.
  • Line a large sieve with a double thickness of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth; strain broth through sieve.
  • Discard solids.
  • Cover and chill broth and meat until ready to use.
  • If necessary, before using, spoon off and discard any solidified fat from the top of broth.
  • If necessary, add enough water to broth to make 10 cups total liquid.
