Recipes- Today is "H" : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Today is H, so haul out your recipes for ham, hot dogs, holiday punch and I don't know what all else!!

Here is how I make ham salad, and I am sorry I don't measure anything. Grind you ham in a grinder or food processor. I add about a 1/2 jar of home-made sweet relish, some mayonnaise and some mustard. Sometimes I will add onion. Mix and serve on bread or crackers. Delicious!
