Using the Whole Ham

We usually purchase a whole ham with bone in when they go on sale. We cut it into quarters and freeze it. When using any of it, we cut off the skin and fat, put it into a container, and return it to the freezer. When we are finished with all of the ham and get to the bone, I take out all the ham skin and fat that we cut off and save and use it for soup. The flavor is incredible. Plus, all of the ham gets used. The bone is the only thing that gets tossed. I cook the soup in a slow cooker, and it's incredible!

 My mom does this.  We usually give her our ham bone and then she makes bean soup and invites us all over for dinner.

Good reminder! Growing up my mom would make beans with the ham bone. After that was done, the bone went to the dogs so we didnt throw any of it away!
