As I said in another thread, I'm looking into beans for LTS. While looking into some bean recipes, mainly navy bean soup, I got to thinking about what I'd want to use with the beans. Nothing goes with beans better than ham. Is there a way to store ham for the long haul? I've seen that you can brown ground beef and make it into "rocks" to store for quite a while, is there something similar for ham? I know there is ham flavored TVP. I've never had it, but I doubt it is much like ham. Anyone know a way to make up some bean soup with the taste of ham without actually having ham in it?
