How to make ham palatable?
I hate ham. (love italian preparations, but not the sweet American kind) Something about the sweet, salty cured flavor just does not appeal. And then there is the texture...A kind soul sent us a Virginia ham for Christmas. What do I do with it? I am not sure I can just eat it sliced.....are there sauces, preparations, or recipes that will somehow mitigate the haminess?. I thought of putting some in a frittata...other ideas?

If so they normally need to be soaked and cooked. I say normally as if it's smoked and dried some just brush the mold off it and slice it thin like Prosciutto, it depends on the aging process and your tastes. Most will soak a dried VA ham and cook it.
