    Jellyqueen's Note:

    We always have those left over ham bones and I hate not to put them to good use. This is a great way to make use of them.

      This is really great stuff. I used this recipe as a base - I'm not sure how large my ham bone was, but it was pretty good sized and I had quite a bit of meat leftover on it. I tossed it in my dutch oven, rough chopped an onion, 2 carrots, and 4 pieces of celery (it was pretty small), added a few peppercorns, bay leaves, parsley, and water to cover. I brought to a boil, reduced to a simmer, and let it cook for probably 2 hours, loosely covered. I strained it out and picked the meat off the bone, and both the meat and the stock taste really incredible. It's cooling now, then I'll skim off the fat, and freeze for future recipes. I'll end up with about 6 c. of stock, I think. Yum!

      I also make my own ham broth. Only I just simmer water and ham bone for two to three hours, then refrigerate and skim the fat off. I just wanted to add that ham broth makes the best gravy in the world for biscuits and gravy! For all you gravy makers out there this tip is for you! Use bacon grease to saute flour in. Then mix half milk and half ham broth for the liquid. Add salt and lots of black pepper. I usually use powdered milk and make it stronger than called for. Add more or less flour, or liquid, as needed until desired consistancy. Hope this helps someone...

      Had a hambone in the freezer leftover from Christmas and chose this recipe to use it up. So glad I did. Since I was taking it directly from the freezer, I did make a couple of changes. I added a little more water so as to cover the bone and I simmered it for a full 2 hours to get all the goodness out plus all the meat off the bone. I then stained and put in the fridge for about 1 hour, there was very little fat to skim. It worked out exceptionally well and tasted great in the same recipe LonghornMama used #47924. Jellyqueen, this is a keeper and Thank you.
