Easy, tasty meal and great leftovers too.
This is the best ham I have ever had! Unlike anything you can get at the stores- this is a bone-in ham roast, made from sustainably raised pigs, hand-cut and cured, then smoked over applewood chips by the farm. It's perfectly seasoned, with just the right amount of smoke flavor and not overly salty. The best part was the texture, it's just like eating a pork roast. Not watery and very meaty. My family especially loved the skin. The ham came skin-on, so I scored the skin and glazed with a maple bourbon sauce. WOW! The skin crisped up in the oven and the scoring made carving easy. I saved the bone and scraps and made an incredible split pea soup. I will be ordering this ham again for our next holiday get-together.
WOW... One word says it all. I thought I hated ham, but after one of SQM's hams I am forever a fan! I purchased on a whim after a last minute shopping trip to the farmer's market in search of something non-turkey for Thanksgiving, Kate suggested one of her hams. I decided to give it a try because she insisted they were easy to cook and nothing like the commercial ham I grew up eating. WOW was she correct. So amazingly flavorful, perfect smokey flavor, not too salty and a great meaty texture. The best part was the skin (these are Skin-On hams)- it crisped up perfectly in the oven and made the most amazing chef treat!! We'll be buying another one for a special holiday meal soon. Kate recommended saving the bone for soup/beans. Tomorrow's project, can't wait.
Not too salty, not a lot of fat, VERY TASTY, and I definitely would purchase again!!
This is nothing like the ham I grew up eating. I simply baked it at 350 for about 18 minutes per pound and glazed it with 30 minutes to go. (4 tbls of mustard/2 tbls of honey because it was already brined in brown sugar. Thanks for the tip, Becky!)
Melt in your mouth awesomeness, and we were fighting over the bits of bark and crunchy bits>
