Cook the Issue 2010: Fresh Ham with Rosemary, Garlic, and Lemon

By Pielove, member

November 30th, 2010

Who defined eternity as two people and a ham?  After devouring the last of the turkey leftovers today, it is on to ham!  I wasn't going to commit to another big hunk of meat, but the fresh hams were on sale at the market yesterday-- a benefit of having a large Mexican and Central American population.  So, as the workbook page says, "I ran to ham".  Don't make this ham on a school night-- it took a good 5 hours to cook, so we will be having it as leftovers tomorrow.  My taste test indicates that it is really good-- still juicy and very flavorful from the garlic, rosemary, and lemon (one of my favorite flavor combos!).  

P.S. The workbook exercise was "what is wrong with this sentence?" and my guess is that the intended sentence should be "I ran to him."  But really, what is wrong with "I ran to ham"?  Nothing if this is the ham in question!

We have a plan for the ham before we head out of town for the holidays and if that doesn't work out, we'll try again after the first of the year.

Enjoy your ham!
