Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

I love comfort food.  It’s what I grew up on.  Today has been an especially cold day in Indiana and I was craving a hot meal in my warm home.  I fixed one of my favorites, but it’s one that is usually reserved for New Year’s Day and eaten for good luck.  My Mom always made it for us when I was growing up.  I highly recommend serving it with warm cornbread.  I took the easy road and used Jiffy mix this time.  Use whatever recipe you favor.



Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes




One large head cabbage

2-3 baking potatoes

16 oz ham (I prefer a lot of meat in mine)

3 TBSP butter

salt and pepper to taste



In a stock pot or similar pan, boil potatoes (cut into large cubes), cabbage that has been cut into wedges for 10-15 min.  Drain off some of the liquid, to keep it from being too soupy and add ham, salt and pepper.  Continue to boil for another 15 minutes.  Serve hot with warm cornbread.
