Mummy’s Tasty Boiled Ham
February 26, 2012
My three kids love ham sandwiches (like most kids) so instead of buying packs of sliced ham in the shops which is full of water, preservatives and additives, we buy a ham joint and cook it ourselves. It's really easy to do, cost effective and you get some fab stock out it that you can use for making risottos or soups.
I recommend buying a smoked ham joint if you can as it will naturally last longer due to the smoking process.
- Prep: 5 mins
- Cook: 1 hr 30 mins
1 hr 30 mins
1 hr 35 mins
- Yields: loads...
The kids can help out too by preparing the vegetables that sit in the water while the ham cooks because they don't need to be chopped finely, big chunks will do here.
- This ham can be used for sandwiches (great with some brown sauce)
- Great sliced and cold for breakfast (with brown sauce again)
- Can be used a Pizza topping
