Okay, did a search to see if this was already asked but didn’t find anything, so here goes.
I’ve got a half of a country ham. I just put it in to soak a while ago; it needs to be soaked overnight (minimum 8 hours), then I drain the water off. Now previously I have cooked it on top of the stove (boiling it in water) but I’ve also baked it in the oven. Anyone have any recommendations for me? I think I prefer boiling it on top of the stove, but want to know specifically how long, do I bring the water to a boil and then let it simmer, etc. It’s a big half too, btw–weighs about 8 lbs or so, and just barely fits in the biggest pot I’ve got! I shouldn’t be eating this stuff (too much salt!) but I really love it, and figure that I only get to eat it once a year or so…
Thanks in advance!
