Flavorful 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!

  • DH does not like ham and I do so I will get another can. We love pea soup but I like the lean ham in my salad. I put everything from the ham in to the pea soup. Thanks Pat in Maine, emoticon emoticon - by NORASPAT
