Ingredients

Number of serving: 6
4 ham hocks

2 tablespoons sea salt

4 whole cloves

4 juniper berries

10 black peppercorns


Rotkohl :

1 medium red cabbage, cored and shredded

2 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into sticks

1 large yellow onion, cut in half and sliced

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 teaspoons sea salt

8 black peppercorns

2 whole cloves

2 juniper berries

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup sugar, or more to taste

3 teaspoons cornstarch

3 teaspoons water


Spätzle    :

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup whole milk

4 egg yolks

1 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Water for boiling – about 1 gallon

Preparation

  • In a spice grinder, or a mortar and pestle, grind the salt, cloves, juniper berries, and peppercorns until there are no large pieces of spice remaining.
  • Prepare a sheet tray with a metal rack on top. Place the ham hocks on the rack and season all sides with the salt mixture. Place in the refrigerator, uncovered, for 12 to 24 hours.
  • When ready to cook thread the ham hocks on to a rotisserie spit. Cook the hocks over high heat until the outsides are crisp and golden and the internal temperature reaches 190 F, abut 2 1/2 hours.
  • Remove from the spit and rest ten minutes before serving. Serve with Spätzle and Rotkohl.
  • Rotkohl :
    In a large pot over medium heat melt the butter. Once melted add the cabbage, onion, and apple. Carefully turn to mix. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cornstarch and water, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and bring back to a boil. In a small bowl combine the cornstarch and water. Pour that mixture into the cabbage and stir to combine. Turn off the heat and let cool for three minutes before serving.
  • Spätzle :
    In a medium bowl combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the milk and egg yolks. Mix until smooth, adding more milk if needed to make a slightly loose dough. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Press the dough through a potato ricer, or a colander, into the water. Boil for five minutes then drain well. In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter until it starts to brown. Add the parsley and the spatzle and toss to coat. Cook for one minute. Serve immediately.
