Cooking the perfect ham is more difficult than it looks, and we’ve broken it down into easy steps.
Do you want a boneless ham or a bone-in one? Boneless hams have had the bone removed, usually along with some of the fat, and are easier to carve. But if you don’t mind taking the time to cut around the bone, we suggest you buy your ham bone-in. Bone-in hams tend to be more flavorful than boneless hams, and they make for a more attractive centerpiece. And as an added perk, you can use the hambone in soups and stews after your ham dinner has ended. Canned hams, which are made by pressing together scraps of ham, are best avoided entirely.
Sarah: Side note, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) traveled to Europe with three aides from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, 2018, on a $63,000 taxpayer-funded investigative trip, and Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani arrested last month on federal campaign finance and conspiracy charges, helped arrange meetings and calls for his trip. Nunes aide Derek Harvey was involved in the Parnas meeting, and he accompanied Nunes to Europe along with fellow aides Scott Glabe and George Pappas. At the time of the trip, Nunes was outgoing chairman of the House Intelligence Committee — he is now the committee's top Republican.
