fresh ham--need side dishes

owen Dec 14, 2004 09:32 AM

I'm making a fresh ham for Christmas dinner and am looking for side dishes that will be good accompaniments. Some ideas I have are:

peas and pancetta
wild mushroom bread pudding (such a good recipe-can try and post tomorrow if anyone wants it)
I might try that earl grey applesauce from a recent post

I'd like to add one or two new sides...any favorites out there?

    Brown some smoked bacon, keeping 2-3 tbl of fat.Oven roast(350) a couple handfulls of string beans and mushrooms (S&P) for an hour or so. Throw in some nuts the last 15 min. and toss.Finish with coarsly chopped bacon.
    God bless Cast Iron Skillets

        Braised red cabbage is wonderful with it. I use a Patricia Wells recipe for it that includes a bottle of red wine in it. Delicious.
