Re: Ky. State Fair Country Ham contest history shows decline of curing in Bluegrass
My biggest problem with cured ham is the size. I'm the only one in my family that eats it, so my go too is one of several packaged, sliced products from Italy. Usually, I just buy a super market ham slice, and settle for that. I know that it is like wanting Graeters (sp?) ice cream, but to settle for Breyers.
As is mentioned these small ham companies have little budget for marketing and innovation. I would not be surprised to learn that the packaging line for the Italian product that I some times buy is $1 mil.
But as lee says, "I want one now"
