    Default How many servings from a ham?

    I thought I was supposed to bring the turkey to the church potluck this
    weekend, but I've been asked to bring a ham instead. I've cooked hams
    before, but never paid any attention to how much they serve.

    I bought an 10.6 pound "ham with water added" bone-in ham shank today at
    Aldi. It was the largest half-ham in the case. That ought to serve
    30-something people if it's not the only meat, right? Or should I go
    back and get one of the smaller butts too?

    A funny ham story...

    We bought a HoneyBaked spiral sliced ham for a Christmas party. I forget
    the poundage.

    Nobody touched it, instead going for the beef.

    My wife and I couldn't understand it. I took a slice off and all of a
    sudden... MEAL ON!

    Not noticing the slicing, everyone was waiting around for someone to
    carve it. LOL!!!

    It quickly disappeared.

    You're not going to get a lot of edible meat off the shank half,
    according to UMinnesota extension. What will you do if everyone wants
    ham? Here's the money quote:

    "The number of servings per pound varies according to the ratio of
    lean to fat and bone and what you consider an adequate serving. Fat,
    noncanned hams with all of the bone present ***i.e, your shank half***
    may yield only one serving per pound for a family with a hearty
    appetite. On the other hand, a well-trimmed, boneless ham easily will
    yield three servings per pound for a family with a not-so-hearty
    appetite. "

    You'll be shocked to know that a shank half yields little actual meat,
    figure on no more than four pounds of edible meat, probably less
    because there'll be a lot of shrinkage with a water added ham when
    heated, and a lot will be difficult to carve so will be more suitable
    for pea soup. I would never serve a bone-in ham at a pot luck...
    you'll need someone that knows how to carve that ham on station the
    whole time... you can't have thirty filthy handed imbeciles hacking at
    it. For thirty I would have purchased a whole ham and boned it prior
    to cooking it... then slice it onto a platter. I've served thousands
    of those hams, I can bone a ham in under a minute. Tell the truth,
    you bought the shank half to save 15 a pound. Even a spiral cut ham
    would need someone on station to serve... next time buy a whole ham;
    remove the aitch bone, slit along the femur and bone it out. Tie the
    ham and cook it (you can stuff it if you like). When cooked let it
    cool for 15 minutes and slice it onto a platter for service... don't
    forget to garnish, and serve a big tub of honey mustard. If you don't
    have cooking facilities on site you can prepare it earlier, chill in
    your fridge and slice it just prior to service... cold ham is good
    too.

    Aldi didn't have any whole hams, so I got the biggest half I could find
    which happened to be a shank. Alton Brown recommends using a shank but
    I don't know why, maybe it tastes better because of the bone, or so you
    have a nice bone for making soup afterwards...

    And it was 20 cheaper ;-) (OK, you got me)

    Maybe I ought to go back and get a large butt to go with it. I'll cut
    it all up at home and take it mostly already sliced and a few hunks, and
    reheat it there.

    Won't the ham bone out a lot easier after it's cooked?

    I'm going to stud it with cloves and glaze with brown sugar and yellow
    hotdog mustard.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I suppose it would depend on what else is being served with it and how well
    they like ham. I'm not sure that would be enough for 30 people. I've found
    the more variety there is, the more people will eat. I don't know why that
    is.

    We ought to carve that in stone somewhere, Julie or at least hang a note on
    the refrigerator door. Indeed. The more variety there is, the more people
    will eat. An absolute fact. Maybe we should bring that up in group - except
    I can't go anymore since I spent all my $s on pecans. Polly

    I'd go with dijon or brown mustard rather than yellow mustard. (And yes,
    the bone will be easier to remove after it's cooked and will be a wonderful
    addition to bean soup!) Never having served ham for 30 people I have no
    idea what size you should have bought. But they aren't expecting you to
    carry the entire meal, are they? Surely there *will* be someone bringing a
    turkey and others bringing sides. I wouldn't rush out and buy more ham.

    Okay, you have a plan.

    >Won't the ham bone out a lot easier after it's cooked?


    No. First it'll be too hot to handle, and second you'll never get the
    aitch bone out cleanly and you'll have trouble removing the femur too.
    All meats bone out easier prior to cooking, it's what butchers do.

    Something like that. :-) (btw, I like SPAM as long as it's the
    original and not one of their recent obaminations blended with turkey)
    But I'll score the fat into a diamond pattern and not use so many
    cloves. It'll brown better that way.

    i would rather take more than less, and if they know they will or have
    already had turkey during turkey week the ham might be more popular... one
    thing is for sure, whatever you cook, cool and cut it before you go, that
    will give you an idea of what you are wrking with, in fact, i might go ahead
    bake, cool debone, deft and slice it, then you can judge/weigh what you
    have, i would allow four ounces of ham per person as a rough guide, this
    might mean too much but some won't touch it, others will return for thirds,
    and if you bake/cut store early then you can go back for the next one... and
    meantime you can be boiling that bone/fat/skin for some excellent ham and
    beans for next week, Lee

    True enough, could also get by with a can of SPAM and a tub of mac
    salad. The most 30 people could hope for with that cut of ham is a
    small slice each... or if it's any good those first ten in line will
    devour it and be looking for ham #2. Trust me, that ham will barely
    be enough for ten adults to have a snack. About once a winter I buy a
    10 pound butt half spiral cut ham for just me and my cats, we devour
    it in four sittings. There isn't a whole lot of meat on a bone-in
    ham, especially the shank half... if folks carefully trim away the fat
    from each slice like I do there's maybe three pounds of meat on a ten
    pounder... and those water added hams lose a lot of weight in the
    heating. Those hams contrary to belief are far from the most
    economical meat, there's a lot of waste, about 2/3. I used to serve a
    crew of nearly 400 ham at least twice a month, sometimes three, even
    four times... every holiday in port I fed over a thousand, typically
    all my ovens were stuffed with turkeys and as many hams. One ham
    doesn't go very far and there were a ton of accompaniments. Often the
    stragglers didn't get any, that's when I broke out the canned hams. I
    plan on making a big pot of pea soup within the next week, I just dug
    out the frozen bone from my last spiral cut ten pound butt half ham
    and weighed it; 2 pounds 5 ounces... it has meat on it but nothing
    folks at a party would bother slicing off. If I were having ten
    people for Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings I'd roast a
    12-14 pound turkey and a butt half ham for those who wanted a change
    of pace... I can assure you there'd be no left overs worth mentioning.
    Seems the military now has already boned hams, 25 pounds of boneless
    ham, no waste, yields 100 portions (3oz), most will devour at least 8
    ozs and return for seconds... If I ever dared to serve the crew 3 oz
    portions I'd get tossed overboard:

    Other than disagreeing with your advice to switch from yellow to brown
    mustard, you're right on. There's no way a 10 lb ham will only yield
    4 lbs of meat - the bone can't be any more than one pound and there
    will be little shrinkage unless it's over cooked. It's precooked, so
    all he needs to do is warm it up enough to set the glaze. It'll be
    served at room temperature anyway so he shouldn't knock himself out
    fussing over it. If he's concerned about it not being enough, then he
    should call to ask how many other people are bringing what and if they
    have any flakes in the crowd. There are always some who are known not
    to follow through on promises, but maybe they've figured that in. So
    after he talks to the organizers, he can decide if he wants to buy
    more ham or not. As far as that suggestion to buy a whole ham and
    carve it on the spot, I say ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FREEKING MIND? Do the
    opposite and buy a spiral cut ham, so all you need to do is slit it
    lengthwise and pile serving sized slices on a serving platter. Go for
    as little fussing as humanly possible.

    You can fool people by slicing the ham extra thin. That's how they get
    you with deli cuts. I'd buy an extra ham though and take a sharp knife.

    I bought another smaller ham shank today. I'm pretty sure the one big
    one was enough, but I'd rather have too much than too little.
