I acquired a package of country ham pieces this week on a trip to Indiana. The package specifically says that the chunks are to be used to flavor things.
I am thinking soups and stews, or beans, but I haven’t worked with country ham before. It’s pretty rare around these parts. :).
I have eaten it as a breakfast item on various trips to the south, but haven’t cooked with it before. It seems like it could be unbrearably salty if used in large quantities.
What would you do with about a half pound of 1" country ham chunks?
