    Default dehydrating ham

    use a lean well cured ham.
    trim off all fat.
    since the ham in the store you buy is already cooked, you can dehydrate it as is. [make sure it says cooked on it].
    however further ciooking at home will make it more tender.
    cut ham in to 1/4 inch squares, or very thin slices. and spread one layer deep on the dehydrator trays.
    dry at 145 degrees for about 4 hours, then reduce temp to 130 degrees, and dry until hard and dried thoughout. during drying stirr the pieces very once in a while.

    to use your dried ham cubes, use 1 cup of ham and one cup of boiling water in a sauce pan. cover and cook on low heat for about one hour. use ham in cabbage soups, or bean soup, or in green beans, any thing really.

    bump. This was easy and yes great to throw into soups. I'm on a mission with dehyrating this summer. Almost finished with veggies and moving into meats. MM
