The warm sun and longer days means it's the season for summertime relaxation. And nothing's more relaxing than spending that quality time around the grill, preparing a meal with friends and family. According to the Hearth, Patio, and Barbeque Association, more than 35 percent of women are becoming the primary user of the grill in their household.
Whether you're coming together to celebrate the season or just gathering to gossip with girlfriends, nothing is easier to grill than ham. From ham steaks with summer salsa to ham kabobs with peach slaw, summer grilling with ham is a sweet way to beat the heat.
Because Cook's Ham is easy to prepare and affordable, it's a great way to make a tasty meal on the grill, whether you're a beginner or someone who is a little more seasoned, says Judith Fertig of the BBQ Queens, whose new book, BBQ Bash (Harvard Common Press, 2008), is available now. Ham is versatile enough that it can be prepared in many different ways, but I've found that it's especially good on the grill.
Consistently high-quality and flavorful, Cook's Ham (boneless or bone-in) offers heat-and-eat options that are quick and easy to prepare so you can spend more time relaxing and less time prepping food. Tossed on the grill or incorporated into a classic dish, you can serve ham in a variety of ways, from summertime salads to kid-friendly kabobs.
Be the happy and un-harried hostess at your next summertime soir
