Ham and bean soup
If you're looking for something to do with the leftover Christmas ham, here it is! I cut the bulk of the meat off of the ham bone, but left a little bit on, cut up a few potatoes and boiled it all in the ham juices plus a bit of water.
I sat the whole pot in the fridge over night, then skimmed off the fat the next day. Be sure to cut the ham off the bone and dispose of the bone at this point. Then I added some green beans and water and brought it all to a boil again. It was delicious with no added seasonings or anything. You could also add other beans like black eyed peas - yum - which no one else in my house likes. :(
I have about three servings saved in the freezer now.
