The country hams that I have had were always refreshed by soaking or simmering in boiling water before baking them. Then the skin was removed and they were baked. In this area you have to pay a fortune for a true country ham and they are hard to get.

Are you talking about "Old Ham"? Very salty and usually covered in mold. It is scrubbed with a wire brush and prepared the way you stated above.

We had chili dogs, since it was chili cook-off day at work, and I had enough leftover for dinner.

Yes, that is what I think of as a country ham.

You make it sound so appetizing.

I do the same thing--and remove the "net" first. I add some vinegar to the water when I soak it...don't know why, just always have.

We were out running errands and it was getting late so we picked up a roasted chicken at the hot food counter at WalMart and then grabbed some Bob Evan's mashed potatoes and mac-n-cheese. Oh... so good!

Hey! Bring me some of that!
You can just set everything inbetween those bagel halves. I've got ketchup here.
Nice

My piece of trout came out pretty good. I mangled together some Asian type glaze and cooked it under the broiler. Also had roasted Romanesco and a big ol' salad.
