How Much Ham Do I Need?

Print Friendly

Q. How much ham do I need to feed 20 people, 20 ham-loving people?


A. A 12- to 14-pound whole ham should be able to feed 20 to 24 people. Get one with the bone in it, so you can use any leftovers as the basis of a soup, such as split pea or ham with lentils.

    We find hams too salty. How to de-salt it, if possible? Or are some brands less salty than others?
    I buy low salt Boar’s Head for sandwiches, but I have never seen them offering a “whole” ham.
