More than a couple of weeks ago, I’m already done taking down our Christmas tree and some decors. But to our delight, the fridge has still few traces of the recent holiday season…
Although personally, I favor 2 local brands : Purefood’s Fiesta Ham and Excelente Chinese Cooked Ham which I think can only be bought from their store in Quiapo, Manila ( have you tasted Excelente Ham?) my wife, Tina and I couldn’t say NO to this HUGE blessing….
Not to mention that we’re extra frugal these days so this leftover is actually a life saver!
It was hand carried by my dad-in-law from San Leandro, Ca when he came home few days before the year turns 2010. Believe it or not it almost weighs 9kg! I can still remember my reaction when my in-law asked me to put it in the fridge from his duffle bag; I said, “Whoa!” I was truly surprised with its humongous size! Plus, what made it different from the local cooked hams that I am familiar with, it’s already spliced in spiral from its core.
It has that usual ham-taste but with distinct tenderness. I want it just fried without brown sugar glaze that comes in package.
Sliced to and around the bone, FARMER JOHN® Premium Spiral Sliced Whole Hams are ready to serve hot or cold for any occasion and season. Slow-cooked for ideal tenderness and consistently sliced every time. Comes with a special spice packet for excellent color and robust flavor.
Do you like ham? What is/are your favorite brand/s ?
Do you still have fruitcake leftovers from Christmas?
I’m craving now for a double decker ham sandwich with generous spread of mayo!
