Cooking tips: If the Schweinshaxe (ham shank) is frozen you should defrost it in the refrigerator overnight or for several hours before you begin cooking it. We suggest the method that results in a dark-brown, crispy skin with hot, juicy pork inside the skin.
Set your oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit. Place the Haxe (large size down) into a roasting pan covered with about an inch of water or beer to catch the fat drippings. Many people use a disposable, heavy-duty aluminum pan to make clean-up after the meal easier.
Roast the ham shank (Haxe) uncovered for at least 4 hours or until the skin of the Haxe is very hard and crispy. Cooking times can vary depending on your appliance, but you are after a dark brown skin which is a bit like a shell that keeps the meat inside the Haxe nice and moist. Many people like to nibble on the hard crispy skin as much or more than the actual meat.
