Hickory-smoked, pepper coated, and authentically salt-cured the old-fashioned way, this Virginia ham has an unmistakable full-bodied flavor (some call it "pungent") because it's aged almost a full year.
Its distinctive smoky, intense flavor makes this classic Virginia Ham the choice for discriminating country ham lovers. When the smokehouse reserved for Edward's Wigwam Hams is full, that's it for the year. That's why this is a true "limited edition" Virginia Ham. Bone-in and uncooked, complete with instructions for storing and preparing. And around the holidays, remember: country ham is one of the world's most appreciated gifts.
Mold on skin of an aged ham is natural and harmless. Remove by washing with hot water and stiff brush. (If necessary, remove portion of hock so ham fits into cooking vessel.) Prior to cooking your Wigwam ham, soaking is essential. Soak ham overnight in water to remove salt. Then, wash with warm water and stiff brush to remove mold and pepper.
Uncooked 16-18 lb. ham. Serves 64. Shelf Life (after cooking): 10 days without refrigeration, 8 weeks refrigerated, 4 months frozen.
