We recommend to soak the ham overnight before cooking so it’s not salty.
(Please do not take ham out of the net and do not cut into the ham before cooking it)
Place your ham into a large pot. Add 1 onion, 3-4 bay leaves, black peppercorns, 2-3 garlic cloves.
Pour enough water into the pot to cover the ham.
Cook your ham on low heat, one hour for every 2lbs of ham on low heat.
After slow 2 hours simmering (for a 3-4lbs ham), turn off the heat and let it cool in the stock.
You can use a meat thermometer too measure the temperature, it should reach 165 °F (73.9 °C)
After it cooled down, remove from the water and take the net off.
Cut some nice, thick slices from your ham.

In Hungary, people eat lentils on the first day of the year, as it is believed to bring good luck and money to the home. Almost every country has its own New Year’s food and traditions. Lentil representing coins; pig representing good luck.
Cut Hirs spicy Hungarian smoked sausage into slices. Add to non-stick skillet over medium heat. Cook 6-9 minutes until crisp and golden brown around, turning frequently.
For lentil stew:
300 g lentils, 2-3 bay leaves, 2-3 cloves of garlic, 1 onion, 1 teaspoon mustard, 2 teaspoons sour cream, 2 tablespoon flour, 1-2 teaspoon vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Soak lentils, then pour the soaking water off the grains and wash them a few more times. Cut the onion and garlic into small pieces and simmer until it becomes translucent. Add the lentils and pour in water that covers the mix. As the water evaporates, replace it intermittently. Add salt, pepper, and bay leaves to taste. Once the lentils are almost soft, add the mustard and vinegar, as much of how sour you want the lentil stew. Mix the sour cream with the flour and a little water until it is lump-free. Take a few spoonsful out of the lentil broth and mix it, then pour it all back into the pot. Boil the mixture once again and once It reaches the right consistency, the lentil stew is ready.
