As it is a few days after Christmas, we like most people, have way too much ham and someone on facebook asked me if I could make my Bacon Jam using ham instead of bacon.
I got thinking and I decided that would be "Ham Jam" (I feel like I’m in a Dr Seuss book!!!) so I tried it out and it was delicious, in fact I think it may be better than the bacon jam! (If that is actually possible!)
So last night we had for dinner; ham with ham jam! Even though Steve my hubby, said "that’s ridiculous you can’t have ham with ham jam" (fortunately my hubby's name is not Sam!!)
So I served leftover cold leg ham with three different salads:
If you have not yet made the Bacon Jam I highly recommend you do. This is the most amazing jam and can be used with so many things. For example it will turn your humble burger into a gourmet burger, boring sandwich fillings get a lift, bake it on top or in the middle of your meatloaf, inside your toastie with melted cheese, a tasty sauce to eat with your omelette, with your breakfast scrambled eggs, as part of a party charcuterie or cheese platter, as a finger food spread on crackers with cream cheese, or fill small tart or vol au vent cases, serve alongside roast meats, BBQ meat condiment, on top of a T-Bone steak, on top of baked potatoes, as a pizza base sauce the list is endless!
If you have discovered any other great uses for bacon jam and now ham jam I'd love you to tell us in the comments below. :)
Thank you and Enjoy!
