List of Ingredients
The dish I'm talking about is like a New England Boiled Dinner but with Ham instead of corned beef. It's not a country ham, which would be way too salty for this. It's a smoked picnic ham with the bone still in.
That is simmered all day with about three inches of water in the pan and two-three onions. When the ham pulls away from the bone, remove it from the kettle and keep just the meat, discarding the bone and all the fat.
You'll probably want to skim the fat from the broth or make this a day ahead and store the broth in the fridge overnight so you can scoop the cangealed fat off the top.
Next heat the broth with the meat back in it and put quartered potatoes, chunks of carrot, a couple more whole onions and serving sized cabbage wedges on top. Add enough water to just about cover the cabbage. Sprinkle it generously with fresh ground black pepper and simmer it covered until all the veggies are fork tender.
This is also good with turnips, rutabagas and kohlrabi in it, but my Mom never put them in.
