How to make German hamhock (Schweinehaxe)
The Bavarian cuisine is typified by rather robust tastes and large plates of food. The Hamhock (called 'Schweinshaxe or Schweinehaxe') is no exception. It is a rather festive food, that people like to eat at events like the Maibaum fest (The maypole fest) on the first of May.
It is frankly expected that one orders a paint of (regional) beer with the dish. And the piece of meat is almost always served with a knödel and / or potatoes.
