Old-Fashioned Ham

An “Old-Fashioned” Ham is a leg roast that has been cured, giving it that pink, salty flavour we all know of as, simply, “ham.” However, there are also “fresh” hams, which are simply pork leg roasts.

If I’m looking for a classic roast “old-fashioned” ham, I use this recipe, from the magazine Bon Appetit.

California Beef Stew

This beef stew is my absolute favourite. It’s adapted from The Complete Meat Cookbook by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly and is amazing over roasted winter vegetables or mashed potatoes.
