Yum. I read Zubr's thread. Great idea to have a separate recipe thread.

Boiled ham & accompanying meals

You buy a bone-in picnic ham.
Take off the wrapping and put it in a large pot.
You cover it in water and boil it for a few hours. By boil I mean heat on high until just coming to a boil, and then turn it down to a simmer. Keep the lid on. Skim off any yuck that floats up.
(You could also put it in a crockpot covered with water for 8-10 hours on low.)
Take it out of the pot. Don't throw away the liquid (very important), I just leave it in the pot and pop it in the Canadian fridge if cool enough (aka the back porch once the weather is cold enough)
Cool and carve thinly.
Serve.

Serving suggestions:
sandwiches (on rye, with cheese and mustard)
fancy sandwiches (chop fine, mix with mayo and relish, spread on buttered bread)
put in fried rice
fried, with a side of eggs and hashbrowns
on a salad
as a second meat
as a main meat (especially good with scalloped potatoes, even if it's just the ones in the box (although from scratch in the crockpot is better) or with Schwarties potatoes)
on top of boxed mac and cheese
on top of home made mac and cheese
or my husband's favourite - straight from the fridge, over the sink, at midnight, with copious amounts of hot mustard

But make sure you save some for soup.

Pea Soup

Your leftover ham broth/water
a lb of split peas (green or yellow - the yellow ones officially make it "habitant soup")
a carrot or two, chopped
a onion, diced
a couple of waxy potatoes (such as red potatoes), peeled and diced
a bay leaf (optional)
a few pinches of black pepper

Pick over your peas, making sure there's no rocks, etc in them, and then rinse them in a colander. Add them to your broth along with everything else. You will need to gauge your liquid to solids ratio - everything should be covered by 1/2" or so of liquid, but not drowning or your soup will be too thin. Remove some broth if you have to (you can always add it back in) or add more veggies.

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until everything is tender and the peas are falling apart, about 45 to an hour. Add leftover chopped ham towards the end of cooking.

Serve with lots of crackers and maybe some grated cheese if desired. And a good, sturdy bread suitable for dunking.
