Last year I shared how now is the time to buy ham. Grocery stores often have a sale on ham around Easter. Also, there should be a coupon in the Sunday paper for ham. Pair these two together and you could find yourself with some cheap meat!
Last year I used a $3 off coupon for a Kunzler ham. Along with the sale, I ended up paying $1.37 per pound. I cut up my ham into several chunks and froze it. I had every intention to keep track of how many meals I got out of my 7 pounder so that I could see how much I paid per meal, but I moved to a new house and apparently my list did not.
I used most of my ham for:
- Chef Salads
Do you have any idea how many meals you can get out of a 7 pound ham when most of your meals only need about 1/2 cup of chopped ham!?!?!? Let’s just say that I was using frozen ham much longer than what is probably recommended. (If you know the “freezer life” for ham please don’t tell me. I really don’t think I want to know.)
I haven’t seen a coupon for ham in the Sunday paper yet, but I’ll be sure to let you know when I do. I’ll annouce the coupon’s arrival on my Facebook page along with Twitter. Be sure you like/follow me for all your ham coupon needs and other good deals I come across. I consider Simply Rebekah a frugal living blog rather than a deals blog, but that doesn’t stop me from sharing great finds on Facebook and Twitter! Plus I often post family updates and other thoughts that don’t make it in the blog.
Do you have a favorite ham recipe? I’d love to hear it!
