35 years ago I used to buy what was then called a "Tavern Ham". Does anyone out there know what this is now called? Thanks guys.

Truly distinguished ice cold refreshing drink! Lemon zest is steeped in vodka for a week, then mixed with simple syrup and aged for 2 more weeks.

Margie, I've seen "tavern hams" in the larger stores. I can't remember who puts it out.Sugardale maybe. You might want to call your grocery store and ask the butcher if they have any.

Ignore Recipe...Hi Margie! I recently researched a similar question myself. From what I understand, a "Tavern" ham is basically the same as a "Virginia" Ham - a ham that is salt-cured and hickory-smoked, except a "Tavern" ham is almost always boneless. If you are interested in buying a ham that is labeled "Tavern" ham, Superior Brand carries a "Tavern" ham that is absolutely delicious. It is neither too smokey nor too salty. They are relatively easy to find. I can always find one around Easter, Christmas, etc. I hope this helps...Happy cooking!
