Honey Ham vs. Watermelon "Ham" 

Views 1.2M
98% 11 852 198

There's nothing like a good spiral ham. Now, if given the option between ham and most other meats, I'd probably choose the others. But there's something special about a caramelized, well-glazed honey ham. You'll likely buy this pre-cooked, and all you have to do to bring it to the next level is mix a few common ingredients together to make something truly special.
But what about vegans? Not to worry. I've also made a watermelon "ham." And you might ask, why on earth would anybody EVER turn a ham into a watermelon, but don't knock it til' you try it. This is one of those things that sounds a bit odd, even looks incredibly weird, but somehow...kinda works. It's soft, juicy, slices just like meat and almost has the texture of raw fish the more your watermelon dehydrates. So, so unique.

What if you cover the whole watermelon in a box of salt or a few days or weeks to then make it even more like meat? Wouldn't it dry it out like you did with the cured egg yolks?

As somebody with trypophobia the ham looks lot more unappetising then the watermelon because the squares are so small

Thats the complete wrong way to pick a watermelon. Knocking on it means nothing. You want one that has a flat yellow bottom. That means it sat there long enough to become dense, juicy and ripe. Ur welcome

Only problem is you said they can start putting the liquid from the actual ham, you put wood chips in it and you cannot consume those, so I would recommend using the juices like he said
