Baked Country Ham

Ben Fink

Author Shane Mitchell orders her old-fashioned salt-cured ham each year from Tom Calhoun of Culpeper, Virginia. Southerners typically eat country ham with hoppin' john (black-eyed peas and rice) or with Breakfast Biscuits. You can cook the ham days before and serve it cold, thinly sliced, with hot biscuits for a hearty breakfast.
