i wanted to try a ham so i found a bone in "leg" as they marked it but it didn't look like a full ham so to speak on sale and figured i'd give it a try. i so i've had this deboned and tied leg in a brine for 3 weeks and every week i turn the hunk around. so this is my last week and i pull the bag of water of the top and some slime drips off the bag. it don't smell horible but it don't smell great. i pulled the hunk out to inspect it and it looks and smells o.k. but but there is a little area where the bag was that isn't bright pink like cure meat. i have seen this when making bucky but i never got any slime. the solution it self is not slimey but it does not have a thin viscosity like in the beginning. anyone out there ever run into this? i did weigh it and injected it with the brine/cure. i don't have my notes right now but i will post them in the morning since i am off for the next 2 days.
