(I'm not trying to make this the all-ham-all-the-time board, just coincidentally posting two ham questions in one day.)
Does anyone know where I can find country ham locally? If you've never had it, it's extraordinary: a long dry cure (as opposed to the wet cure used in most familiar hams), very smoky and salty and concentrated in flavor.
I know plenty of mail-order sources. The Dig's current issue has an article on stuff you can get delivered; one of my contributions was "country ham from Finchville Farms", my favorite. But I'm wondering if anyone local carries it, so I could get some on short notice if needed.
