Don't Throw Out The Ham Bone!

Don't Throw Out The Ham Bone!

Written by Alison Bell

For those that had a ham over Christmas, don't throw out the bone!!! There are so many options to use the ham bone in various bone broths, soups and stocks. Ham & Pea soup, ham and beans (the beans soak up all that salty ham flavour), traditional Chinese rice porridge (congee)... you can do almost anything!
