HAM AND CABBAGE, New England Boiled Dinner

Ham and Cabbage

If you grew up in New England, chances are you ate this comfort food regularly.  It can be prepared in a slow cooker or on top of the stove.  Here is how I make mine. 


1 small ham or 2 ham hocks

4 large carrots

5 potatoes

½ head cabbage, cut into chunks

1 rib celery

12 pearl onions or 1 large onion, quartered

1 can chicken broth

1 whole clove

1 tsp thyme

½ tsp pepper



Cook in a slow cooker for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.  If preparing on a stove top, put the meat in a Dutch oven and simmer the meat for about 90 minutes, covered.  Add the veggies and cook until they’re tender.

NOTE:  I don’t use any salt because the ham and chicken broth have enough.
