    Default Salt cured ham

    Any one tell me where I can buy a salt cured ham to cook for Christmas NOT one of these interminable smoked ones that the Dominicans and French seem to be addicted to. For my taste buds the only food that should ever be smoked and then only over oak chippings are kippers.
    Thanks.

    As a chef I would recommend what is called a lechon de cerdo. Or loma de cerdo. I would then marindada it in Mojo de Criollo in the Rfrig. for 12 to 24 hours. Then bake it or on the BBQ. Basting it with the Mojo. You can also use sour orange juice which is the Cuban way but you need to use your little Oscar and, blend garlic, onion, green peppers etc. Make sure to turn it and keep it moist. If you can get a Brown and Serve bag all done.

    Yes, Goya brand... it's also not expensive. Got mine at Tropical in Puerto Plata.
    You add some of your own spices, some fresh minced garlic and so forth, and you flat got something going.

    ... J-D.

    Im in Las Terrenas, my first step will be to go and have a word with the people who supply german meats here. I understand he gets it all from Sosua. This coming year Im going to prepare a salt brine tub, I gather from researches that back in the 17th century the British Navy was able to keep salt beef and pork in good condition even in the Caribbean! I dont have any weevily biscuits anyway!

    In the DR beef or pork is salted and then dried in the sun, very good stuff.
