Hi Theresa, yes I have heard of salt & pepper Hams, I think that is the way my dad did them….but we never cured any….he did bacon like that too, we called it salt bacon, was good to season beans, etc.I remember my grandmother had this little house she rented and on one side was a room, that she kept just to put the meat in it when they killed a hog.And I can remember my dad going there in the very cold room and slicing some ham for breakfast and salt pork for seasoning….We did have a fridge, but wasn’t that big to hold all that meat…. and he would go to the apple orchard and buy apples and store in that room and we would have apples to eat during the winter……Hummmmmmmm I wonder how much of this my sisters would remember lol….they were 5 yrs. younger than me, and there were 5 girls….. boy that goes way back………………..
