What to do with a ham bone

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well, we wound up with one of those spiral-sliced smoked hams for weekend nibbling, and it's now been nibbled down to the bone. So, my question is, what can I do with this ham bone?

If it matters, I heated the ham to 140 deg F, and then we ate it... :D

Sunday's ham is Monday's red beans and rice. :lips: Make a stock for beans or any other soup or vegetable

Ham and navy bean soup. I like to make it with some meat rather than bare-bones :D If you do make it, make sure to use bay leaves as part of the seasoning.

Pea and Ham soup -using dried split green peas - only way to go :)
If its got some meat on it, all the better, take the bone and meat out before you puree the peas, chop the meat up, and add back to the soup to re-heat. Sooooo good!! A good splodge of sour cream on top just before serving with buttered baguettes...you'll be in heaven. (And making wind for a week but never mind hehe).

Hamhock gravy. Basically trinity, ham stock, a little roux, a little cream.

Go make some pork schnitzel and drape it in hamhock gravy. To die for.

I make vegetable soup with the ham bones. I just coil the bone in water until all the meat falls off. Remove the bone and I put in canned tomatoes with juice (I use homecanned but storebought will do). veggies of choice (I keep a bag of leftover veggies in the freezer for this purpose), chopped cabbage, okra, and season to taste with whatever herbs and spices you like. Then I cook on a low simmer for an hour or so. Serve with cornbread (not the sweet stuff.....just plain cornbread) or saltine crackers and hot sauce!

I would make a stock, then cook some great northern (white) beans in it. I'm partial to great northern beans, personally. I'd also deffinately use some cracked black pepper, and a bay leaf in the sachet for the stock, along with whatever else you think would be good in it/what you have. :)
