Any ham tips or suggestions? I'm a real neophyte when it comes to ham. I don't like buying already cooked and smoked ham labeled with a 21 percentage of protein, but that's all there is. Different brands like PC, Lafleur (in quebec), Schneiders, etc, make me wonder where all the good ham is.

Anyway, if you were to buy a generic PC black forest ham, what would you do with it?

Also, how would you go about making a truely stellar ham? What would you buy?

So we ended up doing a simple ham roast on night 1 with smashed root veggies and a salad.

Night two I diced it up, mixed it with some ricotta and mozzarella cheese and kale and stuffed cannelloni with it. Topped it off with some tomato sauce and we at that for a couple nights.

It made two days worth of lunch sammys as well.

I am officially hammed out.
