Help with Vietnamese food! Mysterious "White Ham"

Clevemire321 | Apr 21, 2008 01:03 PM

I frequent a hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese deli close to where I live in Seattle. Every time I go there I try and pick up something new in addition to my regular Bahn Mi.

This time I picked up something called White Ham. It is wrapped in foil and in the shape of a burrito; weighing roughly a pound. The ingredients said it contained flour, pork, ham and at least one other thing I can't remember.

I opened it today and it is the worst thing I have ever smelled! I unwrapped the foil and had to close it within 10 seconds because of the odour. I'm sure this food is edible, but I have no idea what to do with it. I did a google search and found nothing.

Is this actually ham, and if so how do I cook it? I appreciate all suggestions. Thanks!
