Never heard of country ham? It ain't like it is a recent thing. It had been around many years before I was born and the Sundancer is 62. My guess is that it a product that has been around better than 100 years.

Country ham goes back farther than that. It has been around several hundred years at least. It was the main way of preserving ham. One of the things Sir Walter Raliegh brought back to Elizabeth the First was Virginia ham. Remember Sugar was kept under lock & key well into the 19th century, so the sugar smoked hams we know today would have been an extreme extravagance. It was salt cure all the way.

1. Take a good biscuit.
2. Add a slice of country ham, fried with no oil.
3. Eat.
4. Repeat as necessary.


What Pete said... And if your country ham was boiled/baked instead of fried, then forget the biscuit and make a sandwich out of it using some stout wheat bread slathered with good homemade pimiento cheese...

Now that sounds GOOD!--may i reccomend trying some of Sierra Nevada Brewery's new mustards---Pale Ale is good---Stout is better!--but NOT with a ham biscuit!

Are there still any Irelans's restaurants out there? Their steak biscuits were wonderful.
