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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place ham bones, vegetables and Guinness in a 12-quart stock pot. Cover bones with cold water. Bring to a full boil for 10-minutes and reduce to a simmer.
  2. Wrap garlic, bay leaves, fresh herbs, peppercorns and cloves in cheese cloth. Tie-off with string and add Sachet to stock pot.
  3. Simmer stock 5-6 hours uncovered, skimming the stock every 30-minutes.
  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.
