This past Saturday members of the community and several 4-H’ers gathered at the Henry County Extension Office for its annual “Ham Day.” This day is set aside to begin the curing process for over 100 country hams that will hang in the county’s ham house till time for the state fair. Above, the process begins with coating each ham with a cure mixture of salt, sugar, spices and nitrates. Then each ham is wrapped in paper, placed in a ham sock and hung in the ham house.
