Canning Ham

Yesterday, I shared with you that I was canning ham and today I want to tell you how I did it.

After slicing the ham into ¼ inch slices (the hams were approximately 4 inches wide and 10 inches long, so each slice measured ¼ inch x 4 inches in size), I cut the slices into ¼ - ½ strips and then diced the slices and put them in a big stock pot of water that I had on the stove.

While the ham was simmering, I washed and sterilized the pint jars I planned to use and put the lids into a pot of water to heat.  Once the jars and lids were ready I filled them with the hot diced ham followed by liquid from the pot.

Then I:

Cleaned off the rim of the jars

Put a heated lid on each jar

Screwed a ring on each jar


Into the pressure canner they went where they processed 75 minutes at 10 lbs of pressure.

How will I use canned diced ham:  in omelets, soups, salads, etc.
