This recipe was adapted from Salty Snacks: Make Your Own Chips, Crisps, Crackers, Pretzels, Dips, and Other Savory Bites by Cynthia Nims, copyright © 2012. Published by Ten Speed Press, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group. Photo Credit: Jennifer Martiné.

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces thick-cut ham, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons pickled peppers, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon mustard

Directions

Combine the ham and pickled peppers in a food processor and pulse until they are finely chopped and well blended, scraping down the sides as needed. Avoid overprocessing; the mixture should have a bit of a coarse texture, not become a smooth puree.

Add the mayonnaise, vinegar, and mustard to the processor and pulse three or four times to blend. Taste the mixture for seasoning, adding a bit more vinegar or mustard to taste. If the mixture is a bit dry, add another tablespoon or so of mayonnaise for a more spreadable texture.

Transfer the deviled ham to a serving bowl. If you are not serving right away, cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve. The flavor will be best if made at least 2 hours in advance, but it can be prepared up to 3 days ahead. Allow the spread to come to room temperature before serving.

Ham Shopping Tip

Bone-in cuts tend to be slightly less expensive than their boneless counterparts, and have more flavor.

Ham Cooking Tip

According to the USDA, the recommended internal temperature for cooked pork should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
