Hams part 3

It was time to check on our hams the other day and also change out the cheese cloth wrapping. When I unwrapped them I was very excited at what I found.

This is the first ham we started back in August. It was almost fully covered in good mold and it had already started pushing out crystals of salt.

Here are the three hams we’re curing. I recapped the meat end with lard then wrapped them back up and rehung them. I’ll check on them again in a couple weeks.  I can’t wait until they have finished curing in a couple of months.
