    With the versatile CDO Sweet Ham on hand, meals for breakfast, lunch, merienda, or dinner are all easy and fun to whip up! The kids will love its meaty, sweet-salty flavors, too!

    Make sure to stock up on CDO Sweet Ham, and let your hubby try the following dishes over the weekend.

    • 2 1/2 tbsps maple syrup

    6. Drizzle with maple syrup or serve it on the side.

    How to make Ham and Pineapple Skewers

    Meat skewers are generally served at picnics, but no one said you can’t enjoy them indoors, too! Instead of asking hubby to grill marinated pork chunks for lunch, why not go for an upgraded but still super tasty route using CDO Sweet Ham, pineapple, and bell peppers?


    • 5 pcs CDO Sweet Ham, sliced into thick strips
    • 1 cup pineapple chunks, drained
    • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced

    • Thread CDO Sweet Ham, pineapples, and bell peppers alternately onto the barbecue sticks.
    • Brush the finished skewers with barbecue sauce.
    • Grill for 5 to 10 minutes, or until browned enough. Serve with rice.
