It's incredibly easy to make your own stock. We make our own Chicken and Beef Stock and always have a heap in the freezer (500ml containers). Once a month - or maybe 2 months depending how quick you use it, you could do a stock up and freeze it down. Raw chicken bones (lennards cheap as), onion, carrot, celery - done!
I wonder if Ham off the bone is a better alternative? I'm not sure - I have to look into that myself.
Unless organic even ham on the bone usually has nitrates and other preservatives - my BIL has a butcher shop and even though he gets ham on the bone and fresh roasted turkey the packet it came in still said nitrates for the ham and MSG for the turkey - the one good thing about buying ham on the bone is that legally Australia can only import ham not on a bone so at least you know its Australian
^^i do the same with turkey
