OK so I'm not going to literally tell you 1000 ways to use a ham but I will share a few ways I make a ham go a long way! For my family of three the entire ham is way to big for us to use at once or even within the first week. Buying the smaller boneless ham is much more expensive. Remember, the more handling, processing, packaging the product has, the higher the price. I've found several ways to get the most out of the ham and stretch our dollar further. My number one rule is to never pay more than 99 cents per pound. I buy at least two hams or more if my freezer has the space. I always get the whole vs. the sliced. Not only is it cheaper but with the intact ham I have more options. When you get home don't freeze the ham right away. Set aside a couple of hours to work on the ham cutting, slicing, chopping and cooking. The nice thing about ham is that it is well preserved so you have a week or so to find an opportunity to prepare it.
