Makes perfect sense.... Places that are selling it retail often have to build in their costs of doing business and probably need to make the slices thin for more reasons than that's the fashionable way to eat it....
I'd love to know how one keeps such a ham, especially if they are just slicing it paper thin. How long would the ham last before it starts to deteriorate? The ham you buy at delis is full of preservatives, but you still need to use the package in about seven days before it starts to get funky.... Do you refrigerate the whole thing? Or hang it in your cellar, if you are fortunate enough to have one?
