Q:

How many people does a 10-pound ham feed?

A:

Because serving size varies based on how the ham is served and who is eating it, a 10-pound ham feeds anywhere from 14 to 30 people. The upper range is typically for a buffet with many other choices. During a ham dinner where the meat is the primary offering, fewer people are served.

Full Answer

Compared to other meats, pound-for-pound, ham generally serves fewer people because of the bone. One way to avoid excessive waste due to this is to purchase a prepared spiral-sliced ham. This is much simpler than do-it-yourself carving. A pre-sliced ham presents neat, whole slices that make serving easy.

    How is the saltness of cured ham reduced?

    A:

    Soaking cured country ham for at least 24 hours in water that is deep enough to cover the entire ham is the best way to reduce its saltiness. Those who prefer a milder salt taste should soak the ham a few hours longer. Additional methods include cooking the ham in sweet liquids, such as apple juice and colas, as the sweetness helps to lessen the impact of the salt.
