Water Added Cold Cuts

zackly | Apr 8, 201510:07 AM     19

Increasingly, I'm finding cold cuts are loaded with water. I'm talking about the ones you buy sliced to order @ a supermarket deli counter. The biggest culprits are ham and turkey. I used to buy Boars Head Oven Gold Turkey but that is pretty bad now. They don't list the ingredients on the packaging, I've been told. It's not as bad as the turkey @ Subway. That stuff is like a wet dish rag. You can wring out the moisture. I had some dry cured ham @ Easter which was great. Are there any brands of cold cuts that don't include much added water (or natural juices) and don't cost a fortune? I've been reluctant to break the $10.00 a pound barrier but feel I may have to.
