I usually serve a ham on Christmas eve. We go to a candle light service and then come home for dinner. The ham is easy to serve shortly after we arrive home, since it is precooked and I can keep it warm in a large slow cooker. But even small hams leave us with leftovers. I thought I would share some of the ways that I will be using up the leftover ham.
Ham freezes well. I stretch the leftovers over several weeks, by freezing the ham in usable portions and then thawing it as needed. The ham bone can be used to add flavor to soups, so don’t toss it. If you don’t have time to make soup within a few days of serving ham, wrap the bone and place it in the freezer to use at a later time.
