Baked Ham with Mustard Sauce; how much is too much? — 7 Comments

  1. No line drawing here. If it’s what I came for I will pay the price, however it must be exactly what I came for and the highest quality of that item, whatever it is. 🙂

  2. Sighhhhhh, just before thanksgiving I was at Walmart. I had previously purchased my turkey at Aldi (99¢ a pound) but was amazed to see that Walmart was selling theirs for 49¢ a pound, but they were HUGE, like 25-35 pounds each. No, didn’t buy one.

  3. Katie I love ham too, but have never tasted anything remotely like “American-style” baked ham in France. What is the term in French for the type of meat you buy here to make it? I see fresh meat called “jambon à l’os” (I think) but am never really sure that it would be similar.

  4. Zoomie, I may not draw the line…. but I can get a bit cranky when it seems unreasonable LOL

    brassfrog, could you get a 35 lb turkey in our pressure cooker? I wouldn’t be able to get it in my oven. $.49 a pound? Unbelievable….

    Betty, I buy a ‘gammon joint’ at the local English store. I’ve never seen an American-style ham here. I’ve bought a local smoked pork loin but it was really salty. The gammon is cured, not salted and is raw. It’s probably the best ham we’ve ever had – inc. the ones in the US They’re a special order for Christmas
