Dear Heritage Foods USA Supporter,

We have never liked that American food traditions are considered by some to be not as good as European traditions. That is why we are so excited about our American style cured ham that is equal in flavor as any produced in Europe. This is a staff favorite if ever there was one!

A mere 4 slices (2oz) makes a serving. That comes to (including the delivery) $2.42 for a principle ingredient of a sandwich or salad for our boneless ham and $1.85 for the bone-in ham (assuming 1/3 is the bone).

This is the best value in the world and as strange as this may sound to Americans, this is a preserved product so it sit in Saran Wrap on your counter indefinitely. This product will last! Be sure to cut with a very sharp knife to achieve perfect cuts.

The Jewel of the Berkshire: Premiere of the 2009 Vintage 18 month aged hams

For over 80 years, S. Wallace Edwards and Sons has been curing pork products of the highest caliber. Sam Edwards, proprietor and cure master, is proud to announce his new vintage 18 month aged hams made from Certified Humane pasture-raised Berkshire pigs. This is the first vintage at Edwards to undergo two summer sweats, letting Mother Nature provide the heat, adding something special to the already exceptional flavor profile. The two summer sweats goes back to Sam Edwards' grandfather whose 18 month old hams were the flagship product of the company at its inception.

"Happier pigs make better tasting meat," boasts Edwards. The Berkshire pig is a natural contender for the best hams, offering a rich succulent texture and incomparable flavor. These Berkshire are raised outdoors on pasture for at least 9 months, allowing the animals to mature slowly, and thus developing the taste discerning consumers have come to appreciate in this heritage breed. While raising a pig this way costs more, and takes more time, the results are well worth the investment.

"We love what the extra aging does for our hams," says Edwards. " Most hams only get 3 months to a year in the aging rooms." Vintage hams can be likened to vintage wines. The longer they age, the more developed the flavors. The new 18-month ham is an ideal way to celebrate a holiday, or family reunion, or just to eat well any time. "Hams are adaptable and economical since they can be used in the kitchen in so many ways," said Edwards. "Whether you are slicing it for a main course, breakfast or sandwiches, or cubing it into macaroni and cheese, salads, soups or a fine pot of red beans, there are almost limitless ways to use the product, eating like a king while you stretch your dollars."

Stay tuned in August for the 2009 S.Wallace Edwards and Sons line of Certified Select Surryano Specialty Fed Hams made from pork nourished on plums, cranberries, or peanuts. The peanut fed pork is similar to the very best in true Serrano hams, the Bellota who forage on acorns. The peanut rich diet translates into an equally rich ham, with a smooth, unctuous texture, and a lingering savory finish. What separates the Surryano from the European hams of this style is the signature smoke that S.Wallace Edwards gives their hams before aging. The result is a distinctive, delicious, and versatile product for half the price of the imported competition. Traditions and know-how are the signature of all of S. Wallace Edwards products.
