Yearning for English 'bone-in' ham

Charles Yu | Nov 4, 2010 09:11 PM

Years ago, whilst living in the UK, I have grown to love their 'corn meal coated bone-in' hams Specifically, the York or the Shropshire Gold. Moist, mild & sweet and chewy, they are great eaten alone or for making sandwiches. The latter with some hot English mustard and sandwich spread! So yummy! In London, where I worked, deli/sandwich stores usually have them on a rack, to be carved by hand when ordered. Great luncheon sandwiches!
Any fellow chowhounders happen to come across this delicacy in Toronto?! ( Love to buy the real thing but I'm willing to settle for a Canadian clone! ). I have tried looking for them in St. Lawrence market, but in vain! May be some 'Artisan' butcher in the Niagara area or elsewhere make them??!! Anyone has any idea or information??!! I'm even willing to drive to Buffalo for some!!
Thanks in advance!
