So we just bought some honey ham from Sprouts Deli. It is the saltiest ham I've EVER had. So I'm wondering, if I rinsed it, would it remove some of the salt, or is it cooked in? I'm guessing it's cooked in, but I just hate to waste it. On the other hand, it's very much like licking a salt lick. And yes, I really have licked a salt licked....being the youngest of three on the farm, I was talked into doing many things.... :angry: :laugh:

    Rinsing it will help, but how about using it in a dish such as a salad, an omelet, or scalloped potatoes!

    I wouldn't throw it away. Maybe give it to a neighbor or someone who may eat it. I just have a thing about throwing away food. Maybe that's why I have to use this site. :)

    I have heard cooking it in diet 7 up can remove some of the saltiness, not sure if this is true or not.

    My trainer told me that if I ever get any kind of packaged deli meats to rinse them in water to get some of the salt off. It wouldn't hurt to try it. Let us know if takes some of the salt taste away.

    I would probably cut it up and make pea soup with it - won't need any extra salt.
