Country Ham in Philly?

VosFan | Jun 25, 2014 04:50 PM

Is there a Pennsylvania or Philadelphia ham comparable to a cured Virginia country ham?

I want to make ham biscuits to serve a crowd, and need to find a good resource for the ham.

Every ham I have tried up here is "honey baked" or has some other sweetness that is unacceptable for my taste.

I am willing to try something new, as long as it is not sweet. I know I can order a VA ham on the internet, but I would prefer to go locally and eyeball the ham & purchase the exact one I like.

I will appreciate any recommendations! Thank you.
