Country Ham



Country ham is a variety of cured ham, typically very salty. There are several methods of cooking a country ham including slicing and pan-frying, baking whole, and simmering for several hours (in several changes of water). Whole hams may need to be scrubbed and soaked for several hours before eating to remove the salt cure and mold. I rinse off slices too. Even when soaked, they are still quite salty. I prefer a slice in a biscuit. How about y'all?
