Dear Norby, Here in Virginia there are several well known varieties of country ham, the most famous may be the Smithfield ham, which use fat laden peanut fed pigs and a dry cure process. The ham must be soaked for hours or even days to get some of the salt out and some moisture back in. It can then be cooked and eaten. For me the fat content is just TOO high. Traditional country ham is also a salty dried ham treat, and a little bit makes a great treat. If you eat it regularly you'll be on a first name basis with your cardiologist.

www.oldvirginiahamshop.com has a really good selection if you want to try several varieties. Christmas is a good excuse to enjoy it. Hmmm. I'm thinking baked beans in the Dutch oven.

Gotta go drool now. Paula

Hmmmm, interesting concoction there with those rutabagas.

We picked up some ham pieces in Virginia or somewhere thereabouts this past fall. Haven't tried it yet. It is shelf-stable and I am alternately fascinated and a little afeared of it.

There are no instructions on the package, for soaking or other special treatment, but it looks moist.

The plan is to trim the fat off the edges, brown it a bit and then use for ham & bean soup sometime this winter.

Will try it out and report back.


Maggie

you wont need any salt in your soup. my favorite is ham, white bean, and tomato in chicken stock.

Hi from GA. . . go to 'Foodnetwork.com' and search country ham. Paula Deen recipe is 1st up, and one from some foreigner named Emeril. Good stuff, but don't mention it to your Cardiologist. Regards, Craig

Rice's Hams. Mt. Juliet TN. One of Oprah's FAV things. Tastes like the ham my Grandma home cured in the Sequatchie Valley of Tennessee....perfect!

Norby, having met your wonderful bride at Falluminium, I believe she is a person of great character and good taste. I would never accuse her of being wrong or misguided, particularly in the culinary arts. However, as we say in the South, she might be a little shy on being right in this instance. Ham is one one of God's great gifts and I consume it often.

Jim
