Kinda fuzzy. Good for blowing raspberries on though.

Maybe if you put cake on it, it might taste good. Everything is good with cake.

There aren't many things that can't be improved with an application of cake, it's true. She would probably need shaving first.

I've not been able to find "raw" hams to cook at home. I can only find ones already cooked

You can get smoked uncooked hams in the US but most Americans don't prefer those.

Pork?

I have to say, I don't fully understand what makes 'ham' 'ham' ... I presume you start with a pig, and then you cut it up, and then you either make 'pork' or 'ham' (or bacon) with a specific cut; the ham/bacon route being a curing method. So is there such a thing as 'raw' ham ...

Cured, but not precooked, I think. Many of the hams you find in the stores out here for roasting are pre-cooked, all that is being done is heating them.

The ones that are uncooked are generally in bags like the pictures above and probably say "country cured".

I think that a "raw" ham is a pork joint that has been soaked in a curing brine. The meat then looks reddish-pinkish, very similar to raw bacon, so therefore is clearly "raw" (not cooked). If you buy a raw, but cured, ham, you can boil or bake it, turning into a cooked/baked ham that is pale pink. ..... If you start off with a joint that has not been cured you'll just end up with a boiled or roast pork joint.

Publix have them around the holiday season. If you don't see it on the shelf ask them. I bought one last Christmas.

That's it exactly - a joint that has already been cured but not cooked. I will check out publix and keep an eye open for cloth baggy hams

All this for a pig's butt cheek

I'm 100% with everyone though, I love a bit of ham.
