How to Prepare:

Put hocks in a large kettle and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until the meat starts falling off the bone. Remove the hocks and let cool. Add the remaining ingredients to the water and cover. (You want the cabbage covered at least 3/4 of the way with broth – so add more water if necessary to get this level You can add 2 cans  chicken broth at this time of you want this for soup).Simmer over low heat until cabbage is tender(about 20 minutes).When cooled enough,cut the meat off the hocks and add back to the pan of simmering cabbage.You can serve this drained or with the broth as a soup.I know this seems pretty high carb – but it makes a lot and it freezes well.
