A Word About Ham

There are many, many styles of ham. We are going to talk about Uncooked and partially cooked hams. Uncooked and partially cooked hams must be cooked prior to serving. Fully cooked hams, sometimes labeled “heat and serve” or “ready-to-eat,” do not require additional cooking and may be eaten cold or heated until warm.



Most hams sold today are sometimes refer to as “city” or “urban” hams. Higher-quality American hams are generally labeled as “country-cured” or “country-style” hams. The majority of these “country” hams come from Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. Each region adds its own distinctive style to the ham it produces. There is some work to be done to a country-style ham before it can actually be prepared. When I worked at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store many years ago is when I was first introduced to country-style ham.

Famous Brands

Probably the most famous country-cured is the Smithfield Ham from the Virginia town of the same name. A wide selection of specially cured hams are also imported from many European countries. The most well known are Prosciutto from Italy, Germany’s Westphalia, France’s Bayonne, and the York ham from England.


Recipe Note:

This recipe calls for using a spiral ham. You can substitute any pre-cooked, boneless ham. If your not using a spiral ham, cut a diamond pattern in the top of the ham to allow the brown sugar, honey and pineapple to sink into the crevices.
