Directions:
Boil the hocks in 2qts. of salted [about 2 tsps.] water until tender-a couple of hours. Take the hocks out. Let them cool. Cut the meat off the bones-won't be a lot of meat. Discard bones, fat and skin. Add water or chicken broth to the pan to give you about 2 qts. of broth.
Add ALL vegetables, putting in more of the ones you like and less of the ones you're not fond of or short on.
Salt and pepper to taste. Cook till vegetables are
tender.

Personal Notes:
This is the name that Bunny gave this dish and I have no idea why but that's what we call it and if you have Jackie Glassburn over, it's her favorite.

You may add corn and peas or a can of mixed vegetables to stretch this dish. Great served with fresh baked bread and a easy dish to fix while you're busy and the weather is chilly. Warms you and the house.
