Ham Stock

Rick Long


This is a great way to stretch your budget by using an ingredient that is thrown away a lot of times. If you save your vegetable trimmings and peals in the freezer this can be made for free!! This Stock goes great in soup, stews and beans.

If you de-fat the stock the fat can be saved to cook with.

The fat makes a great Bubble and Squeak!! :)
