Recipe of the Week - 4/7/12
Ham is a favorite main dish for Easter, so this Easter Hash
is an elegant and tasty way to use that leftover ham. It
is super easy to make and is an entire meal in itself.
When I made this I divided it up and used Dynamite Chiles
for part of it. Do not use Dynamites - at least not if you
want to taste the ham or yams or anything but the
Dynamites. I do have friends who would just love this
dish with Dynamites; these are the friends who can never
get food hot and spicy enough. Most people would
probably prefer a medium hot chile in this.
The combination of ham, sweet and spicy, and the yams
just makes a great combination.
4 cups diced peeled yams or sweet potatoes
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup orange juice
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp cider vinegar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup diced mild or medium green chiles
2 cups diced ham
Note: it is also good substituting another fruit juice such as
cider plus 2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
1. In a large covered skillet cook the yams, onions, orange
juice, and apple until yams are very soft (about 30 minutes).
2. Add remaining ingredients, stir well, cook for another 5
minutes and serve.
Preparation time: 45 minutes
