    By HILDA PARRISH
    The Trimble Banner
    I post entries on the Trimble County Historical Society’s Facebook page from John L. Wright’s journals he kept from 1909-1943.

  • How to cook a country ham

    Country ham is a regional delicacy that many of us enjoy but may not know how to properly prepare. Here are some tips and tricks to make country ham the star of your holiday dinner.
    l Country hams may contain mold, which is a result of the curing process. Mold is normal, but it could produce mycotoxins which could cause a food-borne illness. Remove mold by washing the ham with hot water and scrubbing it with a stiff vegetable brush.
    l Soak the ham for 4 to 12 hours in the refrigerator.
    l Cover with water and boil the ham for 20 to 25 minutes per pound.
