Here is the ham I made.post-1430-0-81916500-1446791929_thumb.jp

With salad and mashed potatoes and homemade pickle.

The Ham was made by making a brine and soaking the meat for 8 days.

BRINE

2 tablespoons of salt 

1 Tablespoon of white sugar

1 Tablespoon of salt peter (acute powder)

Bring !liter of water to the boil and add salt sugar and salt peter heat until they are dissolved,leave to cool and in a plastic place the meat and pour over the brine put in the bottom of the ref for 4-21 days. I cooked mine in freshwater in a pressure cooker for 20 mins and let the pressure comedown on its own.If you boil conventionally I would say simmer for 1 1/2 hours.

Sorry ron I forgot to add that here it is called Praque powder and the ham is better than anything I have been able to buy anywhere in Cebu. It came out and tasted much like Wltshire ham from the UK.
