Hi, I have been cooking a small ham in the slow cooker for meat for the sandwiches this week and have the ham stock leftover. Has anyone got any idea if I can make anything with it? 

 

Suggestions appreciated. 

 

Thanks 

chef

Hello there wave.  How about popping along to the Introduce Yourself thread at the top of the page and telling us a bit about yourself?

Meanwhile, your query re the ham stock......I always keep the stock after boiling a ham/bacon joint, it makes the most fabulous tasting pea soup - in fact, any veg soup will benefit from using the stock.  Or you could use it to cook pasta or rice in, or make a white/cheese/onion sauce using half milk/half stock - all things I do frequently.  If I'm not going to be using the stock within the next day or so, I boil it rapidly to reduce and concentrate it and freeze it in a plastic tub.  Hope this helps give you some ideas.

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

Hi, 

I'll do that 🙂 Thankyou for your suggestions- I would freeze it, except my freezer if full with lamb, beef, bread and milk  ready for the winter.

 

I think it may well be veg soup for dinner tomorrow then. I would never have thought to use the stock to cook rice/pasta in- I will definitely keep that in mind.
