    1. Divide the ham hock between 4 ramekins or similar pots. You could also make this as one large pot, if you like. ​
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. When it begins to bubble, add the mustard powder and nutmeg. Season.
    3. Take the flavoured butter off the heat and pour over the ham hock pots, dividing equally. Press the ham down so it is submerged.
    4. Leave to set, and chill until ready to serve. Serve the pots with sliced toasted ciabatta or sourdough, cornichons and lemon wedges.​

Get ahead: Can be made up to 3 days in advance. Keep covered with clingfilm in the fridge until needed.
