    Ham is a meat we eat to celebrate our salvation from Kosher laws. Therefore it is only appropriate at Christmas and Easter.

    Ham is also fine on sandwiches and occasionally good elsewhere, but I don’t think it should ever be a main protein for a dish.

    There are delicious versions of ham, mostly Serrano, but America makes the worst versions mostly.


    Kentucky/Virginia makes some good hams.

    Like ham, also more of a Christmas meat. I'm just not interested in turkey right now.

    A good ham is delicious. In fact, more delicious than turkey. Why is this thread turning into a shitting on ham thread... it has its place, it’s just not a proper main course for Thanksgiving.

    I've never been a fan of those honey baked hams that some folks seem to rave about. They are always over salted/sugary meats.
