Risotto with Ham


  • 1 ounce of raw ham, fat and lean
  • 1 small piece of onion
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon of butter
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked rice
  • bouillon (or water)
  • salt
  • pepper

Cut ham into small pieces. Chop up fine the onion, and put it with the ham into a frying-pan with 1/2 tablespoon of butter. Fry slowly until the ham and onions are golden. Then add uncooked rice; when it has cooked for a few minutes, add twice its height of bouillon (or water), salt and pepper, nutmeg, and mix well and allow it to boil for twenty minutes over a good fire. Then take off the stove, add 2 tablespoons of butter and Parmesan cheese; mix well and serve.
