When purchasing fresh ham, look for one with a firm white layer of fat and a well-marbled lean portion. It can be stored in the refrigerator of up to five days. Cured hams should be firm and plump and the meat should be finely grained and rosy pink. Refrigerate a cured ham in the original wrapping for one week. Some country-style hams can be stored in a cool place 1-2 months.
If you are looking for a different flavor from ham, try cooking with apples, bananas, barbecue sauce, basil, bay leaves, brown sugar, cider, cloves, cranberries, figs, garlic, honey, horseradish, lemon, mushrooms, mustard, onions, oranges, oregano, parsley, peaches, pineapple, raisins, rosemary, sour cream, sweet potatoes, thyme, tomatoes.
