Customers are often asking how to cook our smoked hams. Really they just need to be reheated (145F) as the smoking process cooks them. Here’s a yummy way of preparing the ham.
Mix together 2 cups apple cider, 2 T honey mustard, and 1 T rosemary. Put ham in casserole and pour mixture over top. Cover and bring to a simmer. Simmer 1 1/2 hours. Broth can be thickened to make a sauce.
Don’t tell Grandma, but Jackie has actually helped me make a shepherd’s pie that I really enjoy. I really hated shepherd’s pie when Grandma made it growing up. I make a version that’s ok, but I only make it occasionally because I just don’t really care for it. But Jackie’s idea makes it yummy.
Here’s my version of Jackie’s shepherd’s pie:
3T butter 3T cornstarch
1 c milk 2 T beef broth liquid (or powder)
1 1/2 lb potatoes, peeled, boiled 1/2 c cheese
assorted cooked veggies, amount depends on how much your family will eat
1 lb ground beef 1 small onion, finely chopped
1 T Worcestershire sauce 1 t garlic powder
Start with ‘white sauce’. Melt butter and stir in cornstarch. Carefully add milk and beef broth concentrate. Stir until thick and smooth. **you can use a can of cream soup but it’s easy to make the sauce
Brown the ground beef (drain if necessary), add the onions and saute till soft. Mix in w. sauce and garlic powder.
Mix beef with sauce and pour into greased casserole (mine is 8×10). Layer in vegetables, as many as your family will like (it’s a thin layer here-haha).
Mash/rice the potatoes. Add enough butter to make nice. Add in cheese. We like a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella to make it stringy.
Bake 350F for 45 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes because it will be molten!
