Ham Stock can be used for all entrees with beans and vegetables. I added a bottle of "Guinness Black Lager" to enhance the rich flavor of the stock.

Directions

  1. Place ham bones, chopped vegetables, garlic and Guinness in a 12-quart stock pot. Bring to a full boil and reduce to a simmer until half the Guinness remains.
  2. Add fresh herbs and spices. Cover with cold water, bring to a full boil and reduce to a simmer.
  3. Simmer stock 5-6 hours uncovered, skimming the pot several times.
  4. Remove bones and strain using a fine-mesh sieve. Cool Ham Stock with a ice bath and refrigerate. The stock will keep for 1-2 days.
  5. Chef Note: Ham Stock can be frozen for 2 months.
