I am NOT a vegetarian by any stretch. I love pasta, sandwiches, and all other varieties food with meat. I have been buying whole hams and slicing and shaving it myself. After looking around for a while I found one that was 100 cal for 4oz. Did you hear me? 100 cal for 4oz. When compared to other items like ground beef there's no contest. just sub it into your recipes and meat can be back in your diet.

Today I put my Easter Ham in the crock pot with one cup of water.It was so moist, & the juice from the ham made the delicious gravy.It was a precooked skinless ham .Put it on low for four hours. My sister in laws do this all the time & I could use the oven for the rest of my dishes.The key was the moistens of the ham.
Many years ago I read an article regarding canned ham and how it just tastes "chemically" and not smoked like a bone-in ham. In the article they said it's because chemical smoke is used but if you want to make it taste just like an old-fashioned ham baste it with vanilla extract! I've been doing that ever since and you would not believe how delicious it is! The ham winds up being a little sweetened but the chemical taste is GONE!
