CURE YOUR OWN HAM - THE SEQUEL!


Well, the ham is soaked, boiled, roasted (see photo) and - yes we've tasted a piece - that was a couple of hours ago and we're still here to tell the tale! Tastes lovely, but lacks the deep pinky red colour of bought ham or bacon. I'm not too bothered about that - the main thing is we aren't going to be eating all those ghastly chemicals they list on the labels of bacon joints!

We have frozen half the pork joint after the soaking stage (we bought slightly too big a piece) and so we will have some more in the new year. If you want the recipe, it's HERE.
Happy Frugal Christmas!
