No problems digestive or otherwise from the ham that I've eaten so far.

I made some ham ball mix yesterday: 1.5 pounds ground ham, 1 pound 80% lean ground beef, onions, bread crumbs, eggs, etc.  Was going to use 2 lbs ham to 1 lb of beef but I thought it might be too salty.  I fried a little piece of it before adding the last half pound of ham, and that was a good call.  I put it in the fridge overnight for the nitrites in the ham to maybe migrate into the beef and turn it pink.  I baked them today.  They are a bit salty so I'm trying to figure out what to sauce them with.  Probably something like yellow hotdog mustard and brown sugar thinned with a little apple juice, with a pinch of cloves and ginger.

I used a pound of the ham in a pot of white bean soup, and I used a little more tonight to flavor some blackeyed peas.

This has turned out to be a highly disappointing thread.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Jeeze, and I won't buy a can of food with even the slightest imperfection any more.

This, as opposed to the days when I had the proverbial cast iron stomach.  I also end up throwing away about a third or more of my produce since I usually can't finish all of it in a reasonable time.

They're pretty good at the market about cutting a head of lettuce in half for me, but even then, I usually can't finish it all.

The amusing part of that is when they re-wrap the other half and put it back on the shelf, it's usually sold within fifteen minutes anyhow.

Somehow, this thread caused me to go out and buy a Hormel canned ham. Expiration date is late in 2021 so no problem there, but a curiosity:

The can clearly states that it's precooked and can be opened, sliced, and eaten cold. BUT ... if you want it warm/hot, they want you to bake it for an hour at 325 degrees, and check it with a meat thermometer for 165 degrees. If it's already fully cooked ... what difference does it make?

I've had this exact discussion with my wife.

She's yet to give me a good answer.

Because once you open the can, you expose it to the outside world. If you eat it cold, you're eating it before the new bacteria can do anything. If you warm it up but not all the way, you could be growing new bacteria but not killing it.

I'm guessing that would be the theory, but I'm also guessing it's like a one in a billion shot that you'd get even a wicked case of the tummy rumbles because you didn't cook you're precooked meat all the way.

But if I store it in the refrigerator, it's exposed to germs and such. They don't say I have to bake it for an hour each time I want to slice off some leftovers.

I just wondered if it might be some lawyer's required liability avoidance thing, such as an iron bar carrying a warning that "This product may contain substances considered by the State of California to be carcinogenic" [when consumed by laboratory mice in quantities that would choke a large horse].

Sweetie, the reason we store food cold in the refrigerator is so bacteria doesn't grow in it.

Warm environment grows bacteria. Cold environment doesn't.

I am just wondering if this thread will age as long and as well as the ham.  Wink
