Wink Ham - Need help !

Ok, need some help here, I really never worry about the size of ham I buy, as long as I have enough. This year we are ordering a Honry Baked Ham (5.99 lb.) ! Yikes, sons idea, curious on what size I should order. There will be 5 adults and two children. Two adults are big eaters and would like a little leftover. Clueless this year !

I belive the sell whole hams, half hams an quarter hams. I'd go for a small half ham. That way, you get some nice bone for soups and for bean dishes nas well as plenty of left-overs.

I think you are supposed to calculate a half pound for each adult and a quarter for each child. Don't forget to add in what you want for leftovers!

work on about 200g per person, maybe 100g for the kids (depending on age).
allow for varients (the 2 big eaters) and you`ll get roughly 1.5Kg.
then figure what you wish to be left over (to feed how many etc...?) and add that too.

That`s how I would do it :)

IIRC, using Old weight, that`s just under 3Kg (closer to 2.5).
Minus the bone (it`s more dense than the meat), you Should be left with, just over 500g, and that`s roughly 1 pound in your money :)

Miss Barb...

I don't think of a 6 lb ham as being very big. I don't think you will have any trouble geeting your money's worth out of it..Left overs can be sandwichs etc. etc. Not to mention maybe the best part of all the bone!! I really don't like to consider red beans and rice with out one.

Go for it and..

Enjoy
