For Tgiving this year I bought a very large smoked ham to serve instead of turkey. It went over very well, and we have plenty of leftover ham to use in a variety of dishes for later. As I write this, I have the bones boiling in a pot to use for mustard greens, but I am stumped when it comes to the bark.
It seems a waste to just throw it away, as it's so full of flavor, but I have no idea what to do with it! A lot of it went to the cats (animals have Tgiving in our house, too), but I have nearly a pound of leftover bark that I would like to use for something. I didn't want to put it in my greens, as I don't think the crunchy texture would go well, but I'm sure there is some kind of use for them that I am overlooking. Any ideas?
