The recipe states that you should remove the rind and cut up your ham into cubes, but as I wanted to use it for other things, I cooked it, covered in water, for 20 minutes in the pressure cooker until it was just tender. I kept the ham stock to make soup later.
6. Serve with a green vegetable.
As I wasn’t using the cubed bacon but had the whole joint in the pot, so once it was cooked I took out the bacon joint, halved it and cut half into cubes then stirred them back into the vegetable mixture.
This makes a huge pot of delicious, filling and warming food, which would feed 6-8 people. It would be ideal for a Halloween or Bonfire Party and, even better, I still have half the ham which I’m making into a pie and will feature in another post soon!
