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

So here it is: the giant fresh ham.  It did end up being a shank piece (I had questioned that over in the forums).  For whatever reason. it was completely cooked after three hours and 30 minutes, not the four to four and 1/2 hours suggested in the recipe. Everyone liked this--after everyone took what they wanted for leftovers, I have just enough left to squeak out the other two fresh ham recipes in half quantities.  The fatty parts were definitely the favorite pieces for everyone at the table.

I did not have a chance to get a photo of the sliced ham, everyone was too eager to eat!

Looks good and I don't have a ton of leftovers either, but enough for one more meal for two and the bone of course.

All in all a good recipe and yet another cut of pork that is on my permanent grocery list along with the bone-in pork loin roast that I made for Christmas, that was a real bargain $1.65 a pound at Costco. I am so tired of tough dry pork these days, but the two cuts are all about moist and tender. Posted: 7:24 am on January 24th
