Pork Hock pieces (not whole pork hocks) are cut from a full pork shoulder and center cut to give the meatiest and leanest hocks. They are all sliced, trimmed, and packed by hand. Refrigeration of this product is not required, even after opening. Refrigeration will make your hocks firmer and tougher than if left out at room temperature. They will soften over time from the vinegar in the brine. To maintain the quality of the pork hocks, keep them below the brine level for storage purposes. The red color of the pork hocks comes from two sources. First, they are a cured product that turns it from the natural color of pork, which is a light brown, to red. Second, Red #40 is added to the brine to lock in the cured color.
Ingredients: cooked and cured boneless pork hocks; packed in water, vinegar, salt, FD&C red no. 40, flavoring
