Debbie;

Because of the timing of this, I won't be able to participate. But why limit the definition to cured ham. Fresh hams can be smoked, and taste great. I have smoked fresh hams a few times. This will give those that don't cure the opportunity to start with a raw cut, it they so choose.

and to address a pm that I had....  hope I get it all answered...

The intent isn't to have anyone feel they have to cure a ham.  It can be purchased already cured.   Maybe I shouldn't have included the picture of the ham that I cured & smoked myself.   10.5 will jump in later (I think he worked last night, so give him some time to sleep) but I believe the thought is that fresh ham would be part of a general category of pork.  Also, you don't have to purchase an entire ham - you can buy a ham steak, slices or pieces.   When I was referring to processed what I meant was chopped up, mixed with other things and reformed back into some shape.

Gamefish if your a member of the forum you are more than welcome to join in on the ICB. Just remember you have to be able to taste all three of the main ingredients in one bite.

As for the Ham thing I think Deb has pretty much beaten that horse to death. "Also, you don't have to purchase an entire ham - you can buy a ham steak, slices or pieces.   When I was referring to processed what I meant was chopped up, mixed with other things and reformed back into some shape." And NO you don't have to cure your own ham!! Do like I am I am using my favorite saying. "I am going with the KISS principle" (Keep It Simple Stupid) What can I make with a store bought chunk of HAM, A POTATO, and a PIZZA CRUST/PIZZA DOUGH?

Horse ham? You're saddling us with another ingredient?  I, for one, say, "Neigh."  Somebody better rein this thing in pretty soon.
