City Ham for Easter

A few weeks ago I purchased Charcuterie by Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn. I decided that I was going to make a city ham for Easter using their recipe. It turned out delicious and we had a great meal and leftovers too. The wife made mac & cheese, green beans, biscuits, and a double citrus tart for desert.

I started with a green ham and it soaked in the brine for 10 days. Here is what I had when I took it out last night.

I cut the hock off so the wife could use it in the fresh green beans.

We have had non-stop storms and I was working under a yellow umbrella... the reflection shows in my chimney top.

It was a great meal to share with family and now I am ready for a long nap.

Happy Easter!

    Yes, “La Charcuterie” is a nice book.

    Curiosity, which of Michael’s recipe did you used?
