These hams are hand-prepared and slowly smoked with burning hickory chips in the same way as the Ozark Hickory Smoked Hams. What makes their peppered ham different is a special blend of brown sugar and black pepper that is hand-rubbed onto the surface to give it a sweeter and spicier flavor and a little extra zing!
Tonight I prepared a Petit Jean Peppered Ham for dinner to serve to some friends. Denver and I compared it to the peppered sirloin they serve at Texas Land and Cattle. It was so moist and they raved over it! I cooked it in the oven for a little over two hours, and then let it sit for 30 minutes before slicing it with my electric knife. It was so juicy, just look at the pictures!
We also made a few side dishes to go with our ham. I forgot to take a picture of the mashed potatoes, but they were from my Pioneer Woman cookbook since she makes the best mashed potatoes. We also had green bean casserole and deviled eggs. It was like a little mini Easter dinner, or as Denver called it a "Southern Sunday Dinner".
I am sure they also loved it that they got a bag of ham to take home because the ham was so big! This ham will feed your whole family and you will have plenty of leftovers on Easter. It will ship straight to your door in time for you to cook it for Easter dinner.
