After 9 months of checking on the hams every few weeks and waiting patiently, we finally decided to break into the first one we started curing back in August.

I wish cameras could take pictures with smell, the sweet buttery smell of country ham was amazing. This one came out better than I was ever expecting. Our first attempt at curing a ham tasted like a little slice of heaven.

House cured country ham served with smoked honey and buttermilk biscuits.

We made stock out of the ham bone. I wish one of my farmers had collard greens so we could cook collards and beans in this liquid gold.


Our Hams

We are about a month into the curing process with the hams that we received from East Mountain Farm. We resalted the hams and they are looking really good.

This is the first ham we started to cure about 3 months ago. Its looking really nice. We tried a sample and it was great! The fat has already developed very nice favor. I can’t wait until these have finished curing.
