Deviled Ham Recipe

Step 1

Grind the ham and fat fairly fine, either in a food processor or, in two batches, in an electric blender.

Step 2

If using a processor, add the remaining ingredients at once and process until the mixture is rather like a coarse pate. If using a blender, scrape the first batch of ground ham into a bowl, add the seasonings, process the rest of the ham, and combine with the mixture in the bowl. If too coarse, process again in two batches.

Step 3

Taste for seasoning, then pack into a jar, cover, and refrigerate overnight or longer to let the falvors mingle. The spread will keep for up to 2 weeks.
