Ham Idea Solvers

Problem above: If the ham is a little too salty for you just drop a cut up raw potato or two in it depending on size of meal. It will absorb more salt than you think. My friend couldn't believe I even did this to a dish he made that had a slight burnt taste and no one knew later at pot luck.
Problem #2 opening a #10 can can be easily used up if you plan on several dishes for a week or so with that can and open a few other canned items for your weeks recipes and spices or herbs. Then you're not eating the whole can of chicken trying to eat it all the time to get rid of it but looking forward to enjoying the many recipes you've planned or come up with. Boring! I agree. Ham & eggs, Country Ham biscuits, Ham & Potato bake w or wo Peas, Split pea soup, Grilled Ham, Cheese, & Pineapple slice Sandwich, Ham salad sandwich from the bottom of the can ham bits. etc... Also #10 can can be used to boil water/soup or heat foods over camp fire if needed. Punch 2 holes on opposite sides on top put wire coat hook in to hang like handle and there you go. Hope this helps.

Great for Off-Grid

We're off-grid in the Alaskan bush and shelf-stable food is a daily use item. The Honeyville Ham Dices are excellent for soups, stews, omelets and salads. Compared to the Beef Dices and Sausage crumble, the Ham is slightly fragile resulting in more breakage and dust; but not nerly as fragile as the Chicken and Turkey. The Ham and Beef Dices are the most difficult to rehydrate properly, and can be a bit chewy if not soaked in warm water or simmered for awhile beforehand.

We usually pass the whole can through a sieve and use the dust and smaller particles mixed with mayo for sandwich spread, add it to bean or potato dices for added flavor and thickness, or rehydrate in a little broth as emergency pet food. Works and tastes great in a multitude of recipes.

It's a little spendy, but much more economical than running the generator to keep a freezer full of meat long term and not as wasteful as a million 3 oz cans (nearly impossible to find Hormel or Dak 1lb canned hams anymore).

Great Ham & Pea Soup

I'm new to using freeze dried foods and have been experimenting with new products as they arrive so I'll know what is worth re-ordering. Honeyville's ham chunks were used to make split pea soup and it turned out just as good (if not better) than store-bought canned split pea soup by using a couple of cups of dried split peas, about a quart of water along with (dried) onions, carrots, potato slices and the ham chunks. Simmer for about an hour. It was so good that I decided to get about 10 pounds of dried split peas, made up a couple dozen ready-made packets of the soup contents and vacuumed sealed each packet. Since I want a self-rotating food storage system, various pre-made packets of freeze-dried and shelf-stable foods are used to fill 12 storage bins. Each month, the oldest bin is used to restock the kitchen pantry. The emptied bin is refilled with the newest freeze-dried packets and shelf-stable foods and rotated back into storage. Cornbread muffins using Honeyville's whole eggs is also great for making up vacuumed-sealed packets that can be tossed into the monthly storage bins.

Freezed Dried Ham

I was very disappointed in the Ham...it was very chewy a lot of either bones or tough gristle all ground up and formed into squares. Over time I've bought several different #10 cans of meat potato and cheeses....This is the first time using any of them....I certainly hope the others taste better and have better quality. "I believe in ""If you can say something nice" don't say anything"...sorry but this is an exception.

Good stuff

Good taste smell and texture when re-hydrated. Tried some in our normal recipes and it works great. It is slightly chewy if re-hydrated at minimum time but gets better with more time. I used some liquid smoke during re-hydration for a more of a smokey flavor in a couple recipes. This is definitely going camping and hiking with us.

Good flavor

I was kinda disappointed in the ham. A little too salty for my taste. It takes alot longer to rehydrate than it recommends on the can, but once it does works well in potato soup, omelets, scalloped potatoes, etc. I will buy more of this...just wish it lasted longer once opened.

Ham

Was skeptical so I ordered the small can, now ordering the large can. Made homemade potato soup and added the rehydrated ham and onions, WOW delicious!! Love the flavor of the ham!

Fine Flavor, Too Big

The ham flavor is great. Has the pork, the smoke, and the salt in fine balance to add as a flavoring to veggies. It needs to be totally rehydrated and cooked for at least 20 minutes for best texture. However, even the small can is difficult to use after opening within the shelf life recommendations. Storing bulk dried foods in a refrigerator is somewhat of an oxymoron since they are often used when electricity is out. The flavor and texture, when properly cooked, are spot on. It makes a decent salty, crunchy snack out of the can. Just wish it came in pouches so that I could rotate meats before they go bad instead of having to finish off one at a time within a week or two. Makes eating good food boring.

Just tasted this

I just took a taste test. I got the small can of ham to test. I have hopes that mixing it with hash browns and eggs beaters--I'll have a pretty good dinner.

Some quick notes. I've found and this might be me. If I let foods soak in hot water longer they soften up more. This seems true of the ham and is most especially true of the hash browns. Those let them soak for several hours if not overnight. You get a product that is amazingly rehydrated and totally edible.

Oh and one other thing--do hang onto one of your empty #10 cans with the lids. You'll want to ziplock your freeze dried meats and put them back into the container into the fridge for food safety.

Next test will be the sausage.
