the uses of ham  

On Sunday I cooked a rather large ham. I made ham gravy, because there was all that lovely juice and it seemed a shame to waste it. There was a *lot* of gravy, so on Monday I took a chunk of the ham, all of the gravy, two cans of beans, and some oniongarlicbutter and made ham and bean soup (which is OMG good). Ted made ham and mushroom and cheese omelettes for dinner with another chunk of the ham.

Today I have taken the remains of it and am making a giant pot of pea soup in the crock pot. This is my favorite kind of crock pot recipe (or any other recipe, for that matter): chop up ingredients. put them in the pot. pour water over them. turn the heat on. come back in 5 hours & eat soup. :)

Possibly I should go see if there’s any cornmeal to make into cornbread to go with this lovely ham and bean or pea soup. :)

The next time, treat it like a mutton roast, and stuff it with sliced garlic, and bake it in the oven wrapped in foil, for hours. Mmm. Nom,nom.

Wonder if I can get mum to make the Christmas ham a month early? Hm.. Probably not.

Also, what you describes is every household in Sweden at the end of Dec/ early Jan. We eat a lot of ham for christmas :).
