There is nothing quite like eating something you have grown or raised. Our naturally raised pastured pork is particularly good! It’s even better when you can stretch your meals!
I cooked up a big ham on Sunday since ALL of our children were home with spouses and an added friend… that’s a lot of people! I just baked it on a really low heat allllll day. I seasoned the inside of the meat with garlic cloves and the outside was rubbed down with our favorite, Montreal Seasoning. Cooked up some delicious gravy from the drippings, oven baked home fries, using farm fresh potatoes stored away for the winter in bins of sand, with lots of bacon and onion, and of course Corn!
Today I took the leftover meat off the bone and cubed it up, cut up some onions, took some cut up peppers I froze from the garden harvest, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, ketchup, honey mustard, honey, salt, pepper, cumin, thyme, a smidge of red pepper and a dash of tumeric. Threw it all in the crockpot, let it simmer all afternoon… going to serve with leftover rice, homemade garlic bread and spinach.
And, waste not want not… who gets the huge bone ? Hey buddy, guess what’s for dinner….
