Westphalia Ham To Cure No 3

(Meats And Vegetables.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

Rub every ham with four ounces of saltpetre. Next day put bay salt,

common salt, and coarse sugar, half a pound of each, into a quart of

stale strong beer, adding a small quantity of each of these ingredients

for every ham to be made at that time. Boil this pickle, and pour it

boiling hot over every ham. Let them lie a fortnight in it, rubbing them

well and turning them twice a day. Then smoke the ham for three days and

three nights over a fire of saw-dust and horse-litter, fresh made from

the stable every night; after which smoke them for a fortnight over a

wood fire like other bacon.
