Didn't care for the ham

I didn't like the texture of the ham. It was very chewy, and I didn't think it tasted like ham. I did find a piece of bone in one of my meals. I have been putting up meals in a jar, and they sounded so good. The cheesy potato and ham soup was better the second day. I'm thinking I need to cook it to death, or maybe run the ham through the blender. I found it interesting that people are finding some cans of ham are better than others.

Not bad at all!

I just started getting your products recently. Mainly because I was tired of the Mr. eating fast food or places be closed due to time and place while on a business trip. He's an aircraft technician so who knows when that call will come and where and when he will be. I can now use your products to make homemade Mylar bags meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as dessert! So far, I've used the ham in ham & cheese croissant sandwiches, cheesy spinach mashed potatoes and ham, ham and sausage frittata. He liked it all so far and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I'm just happy he can now eat healthier, homestyle meals. I just have to expand my recipes (trial and error but tasty errors! LOL). Highly recommended to all! (PS - don't just use hot water. Boiling mad hot regardless of using Mylar bags or not. We found the ham takes the longest to rehydrate but it is worth the wait!)

Faith has been restored!

After giving an awful review of the dehydrated ham several months back I can say I'm VERY pleased with the second can of ham I finally opened today. All I can say is that it just must have been a "bad" can because this second can is delicious! It even looks and tastes like ham. I wonder if I could get a refund--I'm certainly am not going to use it...

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.

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!
