Ham Salad Sandwiches

Ham Salad

2-4 lb May Tree Farm Fresh (uncured) ham

1-2 stalks celery

1/2 – 1 onion

1 small jar diced pimento

garlic powder (about 2 tsp)

mayonaise (1/2 – 2 cups)

salt and pepper

2 heaping Tablespoons of dill pickle relish

1.  Sprinkle ham with garlic powder and cook ham in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours until it falls off the bone

2.  Finely chop ham (or if you like your ham salad less ‘chunky’ put the ham in the food processor) finely chop onion and celery

3.  In a large bowl combine ham, celery, onion, pickle relish and pimento.  Use as much pimento as you like; if you’re making a large batch, you could use an entire small jar.  It’s up to you.

4.  In a seperate bowl combine 1/2 cup mayo with a tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.  Stir.  Begin adding it into the ham mixture until the desired consistency is reached.  If you use the 1/2 cup and it’s still too dry; mix up another half cup and add that a tablespoon at a time.  It will depend on how much ham you’re using and personal preference.  If you would like it to be even creamier; add a dollop of sour cream to the mayo.  Yum!
