country ham emergency

antepiedmont | Dec 30, 2012 11:11 AM

I soaked an Edwards ham for about 36 hours at room temp without changing the water and just now when I rinsed it off to cook it I noticed that it smells rather unpleasant. Anyone? I usually cook Smithfield brand hams and soak them for a day or two but I usually change the water ever twelve hours or so. Anybody ever cook an Edwards ham that was smelling a bit off? These oldschool country hams do naturally have a bit of a stank to them but it seems a bit much this time.
