Two hams gone wrong…and two recipes that could have saved them…Cuban Pernil and Pigeon Peas and RIce
Ingrid Hoffman's Recipe for Cuban Pernil uses a Fresh Ham as its start off point.
Much to my absolute horror, my dear friend, Ann Legette in Greensboro, NC, sent me the following email yesterday…
It was so fun to have a funny story to share at Christmas lunch with the extended Legette family – about cooking my first ham, “Monte’s Ham.” I have a feeling all I will need to share with you is my dear friend and next door neighbor’s comment (who slipped in the kitchen door as I was carving the ham) and you will know exactly where I went wrong…
“Honey, that’s not a ham, that’s a turkey!”
