It’s time to think about gifts again. Last year’s gift guide was so popular that I’m going to post gift suggestions every day until Christmas. Like last year, nobody is paying for product placement; these are just a few things I’d be very happy to find beneath my Christmas tree.
Last year’s guide began with pork. So let’s consider it a tradition. Here’s another pork product that I love.
Benton’s Aged Whole Country Ham
Country ham is one of America’s glories, and at a time when everyone’s falling for prosciutto and jamon iberico, it’s time we appreciated what we have right here. People are making country hams all over this country, but I like Allan Benton’s best. Dry, complex, a little bit funky, it tastes wonderful on biscuits or sliced into scrambled eggs, and nothing looks more impressive on a party table. At around fifteen pounds, it’s a real steal, a gift that will keep on giving for months. But order now. The waiting list is long.
