Thank you Kathleen Purvis (food editor of The Charlotte Observer) for the article earlier this month regarding Bryon and Nancy Jordan, the owners of A. B. Vannoy Hams.
These folks are the last in NC to open air cure their hams and have 4 ingredients, salt, brown sugar ,mountain air! and time!
I called and ordered 2 gift boxes (one for me and one for my in-laws), and we ate some for Christmas breakfast. This is truly the best country ham I have ever tasted. The ham was thinly sliced and no too salty, and was very tender. Each gift pack contained 3 vaccum packed packages of ham (about 12.5 oz each) and one 5 oz package of trimmings for future seasoning use. Each gift box was $ 26.00 plus tax an shipping., and worth every penny.
