    Definitely. When I was just a little boy I remember a man bringing some red pepper flakes back to a general store telling the owner there was bugs in it. The owner laughed an said that there no way a bug could live in red pepper. The owner went back to the shelf and got another box and opened it to show the customer the pepper was fresh and bug free. It was full of bugs too!

    But the bugs that eat country ham, and red pepper are different bugs.

    Are these the best? I’m going to order one
     
  3. I don’t know about “the best” but that whole uncooked ham I posted a picture of for $67 is worth every red cent.

    How do you cook your ham?
     
  5. I like to fry mine sliced in the skillet, but I fill skillet half full of water and simmer a minute or two first and swap out the water once to get rid of the salt, then fry until heated through and fat gets rendered some.

    That is why we always used borax in the mix

    I like leaving the fat on, fry it up and cook eggs in it . Makes the eggs a WHOLE lot better.
    I used to help my wife's uncle kill hogs . I helped trim and salt down and he did his exactly the same way I do. That old man eat hog meat of some kind every day and lived into his 90's . They claim pork is bad for you.

    Broadbent is really good. Don't think you'd be disappointed.

    I know a guy that works them up every year and smokes them. Tried it before and it was best I've ever had. $60 each but have to order a year in advance. Have my first one coming for Christmas. Cant wait!

    This right here is exactly the way my Dad and us boys put up hams for years, even down to the exact ingredients. We hung them in large brown paper bags to age. Correct IMO on mold etc....
