How To Make Homemade Ham Stock
Twice each year, we enjoy a ham. And twice each year, I am left with a mighty ham bone.
Homemade Ham Stock is the basis for so many delicious dishes, and adds layers of complexity beyond just ham.
Add 2 each chopped celery stalks and carrots, 1 onion, a leek, and 6 crushed garlic cloves to a combo of bacon fat and olive oil.
1
Stir frequently over medium high heat for about 10 minutes or until soft.
2
Nestle the ham bone atop the veges. Add a couple of thyme and parsley sprigs, 2 bay leaves, a tablespoon of peppercorns, and enough water to cover.
3
Simmer over medium heat for 3 hours. Strain solids and refrigerate the stock for 24 hours. Skim fat from top before freezing or using.
