Picked up a couple shank hams for 99cents a pound. How should I cook them besides just cooking in the oven based on how many pounds they are. What should I use as seasoning? Should i even season at all? I am more of a chicken guy when it comes to cooking, I don't often get access to ham.

bumping because i would also like know the answers to OP's questions.

>a couple shank hams
I've been noticing a big increase in people dropping the "of". is it because more poor Americans in rural areas have internet access?

No, we just call it ham shank

Monitoring thread.

Saw some on sale today for $6-$7, discounted from like $25. Didn't pick one up but if they're still on sale during the week I might. Can't say I've ever really cooked one, though I have a general idea of how to. Deep diamond shape cuts and slather that shit with mustard.

Mustard prior to the cook? Interesting, i have only heard of that with beef once

The mustard will caramelize when cooked and turn into pure savory flavor. It loses a lot of the original mustard flavor, but turns into another beast all together.

I always buy a few, carve the shit out of them, and make chilie verde or otherwise use the meat in other things like split pea. no need to just bake it as is. waste of money.

>Split pea
Gross. Ham is good as is. Soups are shit

>hams are good as is

not if you want a wholesome meal that hits all macro/micronutrients.

sure you have a side of veggies but a soup is better imo.

Stick some cloves in that bitch

Cut diamond patterns in the skin and stick cloves in the cuts.
Bring some maple syrup, a little bit of apple cider vinegar, chili peppers, butter and rosemary to a simmer and let it reduce slightly. Slather it on the ham, and then cook it (can't remember how long off the top of my head :( )

>how ling to cook

If it's fully cooked, and given the pic OP posted, it probably is, according to USDA, all he needs to do is cook it to around 140F internally.

Honey, mutard and tabasco.
