Curing wild hams
Posted: Sun Nov 20, 2016 11:07 pm
Got a wild sow about 130-140 lbs & want to cure the hams & was wondering about the fat on the hams ? I trimmed most of it off but is that going to affect anything when I put the salt cure on them ?? This hog has been eating very well looks like !! Excellent shape for a woods hog - lots of corn & acorns apparently ! The hams weigh 6 1/2 lbs each & I will get them salted tomorrow when I get in from work. Thanks for your input .
