Vermont Salumi makes these hams from pork sourced from Vermont farms that raise thier pigs on a vegetarian diet, without any antibiotics.
Each ham is brined, seasoned, then smoked and quartered, leaving two flat faces for ease of slicing.
This quartered ham makes approximately: 4 sandwiches, breakfast for 3 people and dinner for 3 people.
Enjoy thinly sliced on a ham sandwich, in macaroni and cheese, in quiche, in omeletes or pan fried as you would Canadian Bacon.
Some tips for slicing:
- Place already cut side of ham face down on the cutting board
- Use a sharp knife
- Hold ham in place with a fork as you slice thin pieces from the side
Keep refrigerated or freeze for long term storage.
Once original package is open, it is best used within 2 weeks. Wrap TIGHTLY in plastic wrap and a sealed bag and keep refrigerated between slicing. If the ham is not wrapped tightly, the exposure to air will cause the surface to oxidize (the color fades from pink to brown). If your ham oxidizes, it is still edible! Simply slice away the discolored pieces and enjoy.
