Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

 

Country Ham Preparation


main dish, pork

1 each country ham, any size

SCRUB OR CUT OFF ANY MOLD THAT IS ON HAM WHEN PURCHASED. THEN RINSE IT WITH A MIXTURE OF EQUAL PARTS OF WHITE VINEGAR AND WATER. HANG IN THE HAM IN A COOL PLACE TO STORE IT. IF MOLD REOCCURS. THE HAM WILL CONTINUE TO AGE WHILE IT IS STORED. THE COOLER THE TEMPERATURE THE LESS IT WILL AGE. COUNTRY HAMS ALWAYS TASTE SALTY. YOU CAN REMOVE SOME OF THE SALT AND ADD MOISTURE BACK TO THE CURED HAM BY SOAKING IT IN WATER FOR 24 HOURS. SALT CONSCIOUS PAOPLE SOMETIMES SOAK THEM UP TO 72 HOURS. IF YOU DO THIS, CHANGE WATER DAILY. THIS REMOVES SOME OF THE SALTY TASTE, BUT NOT ALL. COOK THE HAM ACCORDING TO THE COUNTRY HAM WITH BROWN SUGAR COATING DIRECTIONS. ONCE THE HAM IS COOKED IT WILL KEEP IN THE REFRIGERATOR FOR UP TO 6 WEEKS IF IT IS TIGHTLY WRAPPED IN BROWN PAPER OR ALUMINUM FOIL. DON'T USE PLASTIC WRAP AS IT HOLDS TO MUCH MOISTURE AND SPEEDS SPOILAGE.
