Hash with Apple Cider Reduction Glaze

2-4 TBS Coconut Oil
Potatoes, diced
Ham, precooked and diced
2 TBS Sea Salt
2 cups Apple Cider
Black Pepper (optional)

Heat the coconut oil in the pan, I used the leftover oil saved from cooking the ham the previous day.  Dice the cleaned or peeled potatoes and start them cooking.  Use enough to fill the pan, yet leave room for the amount of ham desired.  I used a 60/40 ratio of potatoes to ham to start with, as the potatoes cook down.    Add salt.  Dice the ham and add to potatoes when the potatoes are mostly cooked through. Add pepper, if desired.  I had some leftover Spiced Apple Cider made with apricot and orange juice, so used that with extra gelatin added.  Pour the Apple Cider/gelatin mix to the Hash and let bubble gently on medium or lower for about 10-15 minutes. You can stir if you want, but I didn't...just set the timer and did other things.  

Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
