Preserving Ham

================== Information file ================== Rub your ham, which should be of fine grained, well fed pork, when quite cold, with fine salt, to which add a little red pepper, and half a pinto of molasses. Let it remain in the pickle, basting and turning it for six weeks. Then hang it up, and smoke for six weeks. About the first week in April take it down; wash it in cold water, and rub it over with unleached ashes. If you have any number of hams, let them lie for a week, heaped together; then hang them in a cool room, having sewn them in canvass or old cotton covers. Origin: The Canadian Settler's Guide, written in 1855
