The economics of pork & ham

Howard-2 | Apr 10, 2005 04:10 PM

Fresh pork of any kind is always more expensive than ham. Does anyone know why?

In the New England area, and elsewhere, I can get ham for under $1.79/lb, and on sale, for $0.99/lb. That ham has less water than fresh pork, and has been processed, which you'd think should add to the expense. But it does not seem to.

Anyone know what the story is?
