Spanish Ham Care
Looking after a Spanish Ham
is very easy, there are a few basic steps to follow to maintain the hams freshness and ensure longevity.
1) Always keep the first (thicker slice) and place back on top of the exposed meat after carving.
2) Smear a little olive oil over the exposed meat, this will help prevent the ham, drying out.
3) Cover the ham with a tea-towel or muslin sock (which should allways be supplied)
Follow the above steps and keep your ham fresh, that is if it lasts long enough without being enthusiasticly devoured first!
