Ground Ham

Ask the Test Kitchen

Ham Loaf sound delicious. But I don’t own a food processor or meat grinder. Will a butcher grind the ham? —R.S., Fairfield, CaliforniaMany meat departments will grind a ham for you if you’re buying the ham from them. Others, however, will not grind ham because of safety concerns. The same grinders may be used to grind red meats, and even though they’ve been cleaned, the grinders can pose a risk of cross-contamination.
