Storing Ham

Storing cured ham

I’ve been experimenting with ways of storing our ham shoulder which we cured from the pig. We don’t eat it all that often so it’s important to find a way of keeping it moist, mould-free and away from the flies. 

Once I’ve cut off any ham that I need, I smear the exposed surface with olive oil. I then fold some sheets of kitchen roll over before wrapping in two square of gauze or muslin, the first one way and the second, the other.
