just like your granny used to make. An essential 'must-eat' for cold winter nights. It means you have to prepare it the day before, but it's well worth it. Try adding some dumplings twenty minutes before the end for a belly-busting and hearty meal that's just right for keeping the cold out.
- 1 ham hocks (soaked overnight in cold water)
