What I thought the hammyball was going to be (I was dissapointed)

A ball made of compressed ham, maby about the size of a basketball, serves no real purpose, I guess you could eat it at christmas or somthing if you wanted, I think I would just gaze at it in wonder though.

Molded ham is baked. Maybe not sperical though. http://www.reno-gbc.com/mold_systems.html
Talk to these folks. I'll bet they can hook you up. [half, Oct 09 2002, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       May I just add that by no means is this limited to ham.
Gulherme, Oct 09 2002
  

       So the ham comes in its own basketball net?   

       No thanks to turkey balls.

       Dogs would love this.......   

       Are you envisaging something like a spherical kebab ? Ham, turkey, chicken, lamb, beef .... the possibilites are endless. A large sphere of low-fat, gristle-free meat, annointed with herbs, spices and gravy ..... it would garce any dining table.   

       It could be built up in layers of different meats, like a gobstopper. Gets my vote.

       "Could someone roll me the ham?"   

       Certainly opens up a whole new line of ovenware possibilities. Not to mention the custard-filled ham and the pinata ham.   

       How about a dodecahedr-ham? At least it won't roll away while you try to carve it.

       Isn't the problem with carving somewhat-spherical foods that they already tend to 'pop' out from under the knife? This ham ball would be impossible to carve! It should be sold with a big F-clamp, or a leg-hold trap to properly secure it.

       We, being the resourceful group we are, could invent the "large and sturdy dinner table vice gripper", to efficiently hold our round balls of meat in place, whilst we sliced.

       Images of mini ham balls in foil wrapped packets come to mind. Just blast 'em in the microwave for 30 seconds and *ping!*... freshly cooked, gravy filled, bread-crumb coated, crunchy, gooey, salty (e.t.c.) ham balls in your hand. Another possibility is the mini fish ball of course (which comes with mini potatoes as well) {I live in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom if you were wondering about the fish and chips reference}

       Wow... an idea of mine gets recognised by somebody else's idea. Champagne please.   

       Would there be a national hambasketball league?
NickTheGreat, Oct 09 2002
  

       [Nickthegreat] Sure! Imagine the speciality moves such as the "gravy sidewinder" or the "gristle blinder". I think that the net should be replaced by a bucket of sauce, therefore covering the ball in gooey stuff, making the game more exciting. Of course, the winners will get to eat the ball. Ew...can u imagine the dirtiness of it after the game!? :p

       You could carve ham sculptures out of these too.

       Ham it up at the bowling alley while resizing the grip
thumbwax, Oct 10 2002
  

       Outer layer to inner layer, ham - lamb - turkey - beef - chicken with a liquid cheese center, ofcorse every meat layer will be surrounded by the appropriate herbs and stuffings.

       I'm all for golf ball sized ham balls. Maybe precooked and in little gold and black (chocolate candy) like wrapper. Unwrap, pop in mouth and enjoy. Why not. Can I get a begal with that?   

       Wait, isn't that wat McDon's does. I think they get their ham in little spam like balls then just flatten them on the grill.
