You are getting ready for that big dinner party with your friends and family. You are preparing several dishes and sides. You have the ham pulled out and ready to cook, but you notice some mold on the side of the ham. You are not sure what to do—throw the ham out, cut the mold off the ham or find some other piece of meat to cook. You don't have to toss the ham or find another piece of meat. All you need is a stiff brush and some vinegar to remove the mold.
Wash the ham in warm water. Wear latex gloves to protect your hands.
Lay the ham on a clean surface and scrub the mold off the ham with a stiff brush. Examine the ham closely, and look for and remove any remaining mold. Place the mold in a trash bag or can for proper disposal.
Fill a baking or roasting pan with 2 cups of water and 1 cup of white vinegar. Place the ham in the vinegar/water solution.
Use a clean rag or towel to wash the ham with the vinegar/water solution. Rinse the ham in warm water and then prepare it with seasonings before placing it in your oven.
