National Country Ham Association

Country Ham Comfort
Country ham producers have their own recipes for curing and/or smoking their hams, so while they are similar none are the same. Country ham can be found today in specialty shops or better grocery stores. Time-strapped cooks can simply make a phone call or go online to order a unique country ham, which can be ordered one day and delivered the next, cooked, sliced and ready to serve!
