Getting close to moving

Thursday, April 25, 2019

Hopefully I will be moving into my own apartment this weekend. Ok am waiting for a couple pieces to get there before I can do that. A new bed and a love seat. I already have a dining room table and a recliner over at the apartment. I would have been in there sooner but it needed to be cleaned. Especially the stove. My pastor helped me to get it done. At least 20 hours on it and 3 to 4 cans of Easy Off to get it cleaned. He also cleaned the fridge. All that is left is the stainless steel sink. It's a little bit stained. I don't have to go far from where I live to get to the apartment. There are behind me. I can walk to it from here. I can't wait to get there.

Got a question. Has anyone cooked a bone in ham in a crock pot before? I got one 2 weeks ago yesterday from the food pantry for our county and I was thinking about putting it into the crock pot and cooking it. If so, how long will it take to cook? It's at least 5 pounds give or take. I was thinking about making ham and beans with it in the crock pot. Just wanted to try something different. I have done beef and noodles in the crock pot and it turned out yummy. If anyone can help me that would be great. When my mom baked it in the oven, she would dump a can of cola (not diet) and cook it. It helped with getting rid of the salt in it. If anyone wants to try that trick, be my guest. It does work.

    Is the ham cured or fresh? If cured, it can be eaten without further cooking and you can then use the bone for a base for soup or flavoring for a bean dish. emoticon

    I am not a ham eater or not very much in my life, but I thought you were supposed to rinse the ham off first (unless it was glazed) before baking.

    This is advice for one that is smoked, not raw: https://www.livestrong.com/article/

    Here is another one that mentions a ham with a bone in but not smoked already:

    So nice of your pastor to give hands on help!
