Pineapple Ham Balls Recipe

Publisher Photo
Cooking has been a big part of my life...I come from a family of eight, and my husband and I have five children, all grown now. I've made my ham balls for years. They're a great use for leftovers, especially if you're in a hurry. Bob and I farmed for 30 years before our son took over. My farmer still owns two tractors...along with a lawn-cutting and acreage-tilling business!
