Leftover ham? Here is your rescue! This is another hand me down recipe from my Nanny!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is an amazing stew and a great recipe for leftover ham. Cooking the navy beans down with the ham bone gave this a savory base. The beans alone are great. Adding cabbage and potatoes is a perfect addition and makes this a hearty stew for colder days. We opted to season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder... simple and delicious. This stew is nice, thick and perfect with a big slice of cornbread. The Test Kitchen
