A hearty use of leftover ham.
Meet Bill Kibler, Portage County farmer
Yellow split peas have a more delicate flavor and prettier color than their green cousin but either one creates a hearty soup that draws a lot of flavor and meat from smoked ham hocks. Letting the finished soup sit or “cure” in the refrigerator for a couple of days will continue to improve the flavor.
Leftover holiday hams are destined for sandwiches…lots of sandwiches! This one pairs the smoky sweetness of ham with the creamy goodness of Brie cheese. Make “sub-style” for a casual luncheon with friends. This sandwich is equally as good with smoked turkey.
