The second ham is out of the salt and now we just need to wait 9-12 months!

The second ham is now out of the salt and got a good wash down with the hose to get all the salt off it. Its been 32 days in the box of salt.2015-01-15 17.08.48I patted it dry with a tea-towel and tomorrow I will wipe it down with some white vinegar and then hang it up to dry.2015-01-15 17.11.52The problem with the flies is going to start in the next couple of months so will need to have a couple of muslin sacks made up. These will fit loosely around the hams allowing the wind to pass through but hopefully keep the flies away from laying their eggs.2015-01-15 17.12.24
