How to Make BONNIE'S HAMBONE DINNER
- PREPARE HAMBONE:
Use a leftover spiral hambone with meat. Trim any excess fat and discard it. Place the hambone in a extra large pot and cover with about a gallon of water.
- ADDING THE INGREDIENTS:
- Add the onions, garlic, chicken granules, McCormick seasoning, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and slow simmer for about an hour.
- Add the carrots, simmer for 1/2 hour, then add the potatoes. When the potatoes are just tender, add the green beans and simmer until tender. Avoid adding more seasoning until end of cooking time because flavors blend as it simmers.
- TO SERVE:
Using a slotted spoon, ladle potatoes, carrots, onions and green beans and the ham on a dinner plate or in a large bowl. Enjoy!
Reserve the broth to be used for Hambone Bean Soup.
