Save Your Ham Bones!!!!!!!!


Don't throw away dem Ham bones and scraps. Save in quart freezer bags for future use. Great for cooking Beans, Veggies and making Ham Stock later.

Same goes for leftover Turkey/Chicken carcasses/scraps, except you will need gallon size bags. Gumbo/Soup base or Poultry Stock.

I never save turkey carcasses I just boil them and save the stock. Seems easier that way.

re: Save Your Ham Bones!!!!!!!!


Ham stock is one of the best tasting stocks. I collect bones and shanks to make it. I make a black eyed pea and andouille soup for New Year's every year and the ham stock really makes it. For that stock, I use thyme and rosemary along with red wine over the bones. Could throw some rice in a bowl of stock and eat it just like that.

Yes, if you have time to do so and have limited freezer space. They do save for a few months well if need be.......

I save Chicken trimmimgs, fat, etc. thru the year also for future use. BTW, I have a large freezer.......

I start early and let it slow seep for hours. The smell thru the house is wonderful.
