I’m buying a cold cooked ham this weekend for Christmas. Which is the tastiest? Shoulder, Leg, on the bone, deboned? It’s all very confusing! Would love your answers!

  • I’d go for leg ham on the bone.


  • i would just find a good local butcher and ask them. choice comes down greatly to what your using it for eg. cold sliced, oven glaze ect


  • Some great answers,l love all types of ham!


  • I love any ham, but not too keen on too much of the smoked ones as I don’t really like that type of flavour .


  • We always get a Bertochi ham, on the bone.
    We love the ham & our dog loves the bone he gets afterwards so everyone gets a treat.


  • Leg ham on the bone is always delicious& if you are alone a small loin wood smoked ham is brilliant costing from $6 up at Woolworths.My favourite.


  • Coming soon! Really interesting reading the comments to this!


  • This is an easy one for me – the ham of choice for our family is Bertocchi – moist, the bone doesn’t go off, and the leftovers can be frozen for great pea and ham soup!


  • Definately leg ham boneless triple smoked by a special company in toorak called “Brazen Bean” onthe corner of grange road. They also did a turkey which was absolutely beautiful i cannot describe how good it was. it’s a type of catering company, that makes brilliant meals even just for home to keep in the fridge or freezer for those tired nights.
    12-14, 1Grange rd, Toorak. Vic- the meals are sensational to say the least!!


  • on the bone fresly sliced


  • all I can think of now is tasty delicious ham of all sorts – shoulder, leg, smoked, honey glazed. I think I am having a Homer moment!


  • i love all hams so it really is just personal choice


  • definitely shoulder ! ! !


  • what did you end up doing


  • there are some good comments here
