All About Hams
Whatever kind of ham you choose, they all come from cured pork leg meat. Curing gives ham its distinctive sweet-smoky and salty flavor. Hams are usually either wet or dry cured. Most supermarket hams, including the convenient spiral-cut hams, are wet cured, meaning they have been processed with a brine of water, salt, sugar and spices. Brining keeps the meat moist and tender.
Dry-cured hams are rubbed with salt, sugar and spices, then aged anywhere from several weeks to more than a year. These hams, referred to as country hams, are often named for the city in which they are processed. Dry-cured hams are very salty, so follow package directions for using.
Place ham on carving board or platter fat side up, bone facing you. Cut in half next to bone.
Place boneless side of ham fat side up; cut slices. Cut slices from bone-in portion, cutting away bone.
