My wonderful sister, Amy, filled me in on a great tip: Now is the time to buy ham! According to Amy, every year around Christmas and Easter hams are discounted. Plus there is a coupon for ham in the Sunday paper. So now is an excellent time to buy ham!
Amy buys a ham, cuts it into chunks and freezes it. Then she sees how many different ways she can enjoy her frugal find over the next couple of months. Amy actually kept a tally of all the different things she did with her Christmas ham.
There was a $3 off coupon for Kunzler hams in the Sunday paper the other week. Plus ham was selling for $1.78 a pound at a local grocery store. I was very pleased to buy a 7.24 pound ham for just $9.89! I already have plans to make a quiche and potato ham soup.
What are your favorite ham recipes? I could use some tips on how to use up my 7 pounder!
