I take it and boil it for several hours, as long as I can take it. Put in 1/4 sleeve of butter, I add carrots then add pototoes peeled cut in halfs. Then I add cabbage cut up or chopped and cook till tender. Then you can do it two different ways, eat as a dinner take out the meat and cut off, and serve with cabbage and the rest or just put the extra's back in pan and use as soup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernCooken Traditional Virginia Ham
Smithfield Ham has been a Virginia staple since our Settlers arrived. The only way to keep the meet with out fridges was to roll the ham in salts and other seasonings, wrap in a burlap bag, hang them in what was called a smoke house ( a brick building with a roof that had a small chimney). They would build a large fire in the center of the building and the town folk or has the grew the butcher would hang dozens of pork shoulders mostly for drying, and strips of beef, turkey, pheasant, anything to turn into a jerky.
Salted ham has it is called in some delis are best served shaved, with a sharp cheddar cheese on a light and fluffy biscuit, slightly warmed and served with cantaloupe. The sweetness and the salty is wonderful.

I purchased one of the picnic hams to serve at my Easter dinner. I baked the ham as i always have with brown sugar glaze and pineapples. When we begn dinner,one of my guest was the first to take the first bite. I guess not wanting to embaress me she said oh,its a little salty. I immediately took a bite of mine and almost choked. This ham was so salty it was absolutely inedible. This was the only meat i had prepared and my Easter dinner was a total embaressment. I will never purchase this ham again. I am 76 years old and have bought and cooked many picnic hams but never have I been so disappointed. I would not advise anyone to purchase this ham .

One of the best hams I have used for my beer boiled shredded ham. Knocks out most of the salt and enhances the smoke flavor.
