Up for auction is something to give you a little flavor of the South...Virginia to be exact. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
The main feature is a package of "genu-swine" country ham! *This is a "delicacy" around here and one of my favorite treats. *There is nothing better than a hot buttered biscuit with a slab of country ham stuffed in it. *Add a little red-eye gravy, some butter beans, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob and you've got a dynomite southern meal. **drool*
Also included in this tastey package is Butter Toffee Virginia peanuts (as a sweet treat after your ham biscuit...hehe), a Chesapeake Bay clam dip kit (with clams included), a bottle of Virginia Gentleman Bourbon Chipotle hot sauce and a jar of Graves Mountain damson plum preserves (great with one of those ham biscuits!). *All products are grown/produced in Virginia.
I'm making myself hungry.... *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
For those of you unfortunates who have never had the privilege of partaking of country ham, let me warn you it is very salty! *It is not like bland, rubbery baked or boiled ham. *It can be washed or soaked to reduce the saltiness. *Its salty because it is salt-cured. *And because it is cured, it can safely be shipped anywhere in the world. *It is also vacuum packed. *In the olden days, country hams were cured with salt and hung in curing barns for months. *These hams are shipped all over the world. *Tamlin Dawnstar has used it to make a ham stew which he said was delicious! *Ham is also used to flavor vegetables and soups.
The ham package contains 3 thick slabs of ham. *You can make red-eye gravy with coffee added to the ham drippings (yes, I know that sounds odd but trust me red-eye gravy is good and tastes nothing like coffee). *It only takes 2 minutes to cook so its a quick easy meal.
Have I sold you yet?? *No? *Good! *I'm craving a ham biscuit with Graves Mountain damson plum preserves and a toffee peanut dessert. *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
Opening bid is $5 and I will ship out of the U.S.
