A word about ham. My family are some of the best cooks in the world. No really. But we were never really “ham people”. We maybe had one every other year for Easter, and it was not my favorite. Only recently have I discovered the wonders of the smoked ham. Ah, it is a beautiful thing. Our Easter ham this year was quite lovely and I can’t imagine going back to just a plain old cured ham. I think I am now a ham snob.
