Family Dinners: How To Purchase A Delicious Ham

No matter if you’re getting ready for a family Easter Dinner or simply a Family gathering, a baked ham is crowd pleaser for dinner. This article will provide you tips on how to buy a ham.


Most hams in the market are sold fully cooked to make your job as the cook simple. All you have to do is warm it up, slice it and serve. There are three important parts of making a delicious ham – scoring the ham, whipping up a sauce, and making/applying the glaze.


A ham is made from the hind leg of pork. For an Easter ham, you want the pork to be cured with brine, smoked and fully cooked.


A ham is brine by being injected with water, salt, sugar, phosphates and nitrites. This will help you make your pork flavorful and lean in texture.


If you want the best grade of ham you should buy a whole or half ham. A half ham can feed up to 14 people.
