Help !!! The butcher misunderstood me and gave me a pork shoulder instead of a pork leg. Can this still be made as a ham ??

Can you use a fresh pork shoulder to make a ham ?

I would switch to the recipe for roast shoulder. The other recipe calls for a ham that has been cured already and since your should has not been cured, it will be a different process.

Make this: https://www.bonappetit... Along the same lines as your ham recipe, and a nice change from a standard pork shoulder. Happy Thanksgiving! ;o)
