Which Type of Ham
Right around Easter, you will start to see several different cuts/ types of ham out there. There are bone-in, boneless, fully cooked, smoked etc. Then you have the option of the shank or the butt?
I prefer the bone-in spiral ham. The reason for my loving this style of ham is that you still get the extra flavor that a bone-in cut lends but it is much easier to serve as the slices are already cut for you. You simply need to detach the slices to serve. Does that make sense?
