TUDOR BOILED AND BAKED HAM - Smoked and salted hams were very important as a method of preserving pig meat over the winter. They appear in small amounts in many dishes to add flavour and interest in the winter months. Pottages, broths and pease pudding all include ham in some versions. - Tudor Recipe (cookit.e2bn.org)
