    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.

    I'd bid, but I've had a country ham biscuit from Ukrop's (White House Rolls = Nirvana [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ) and it's too salty for my taste.

    But don't let me discourage you! If you enjoy pork in any way you owe it to yourself to give this a try! It's the next best thing to the Brunswick Stew Festival!

    Mike you probably had a country ham ROLL...not biscuit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] But you still got a flavor for the ham. And yes its salty. But so are olives, capers, caviar salted fish and other things people just adore. I did want to include some Brunswick stew but I hated to get canned stew because its just not the real thing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    One of my favorite things in the world is a McDonald's country ham biscuit. Yes, here, McDonalds serves ham biscuits for breakfast. YUM! Egg McMuffin...get out of my way! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Oh, and I made a slight edit...the Va Gentleman sauce is HOT sauce, not BBQ sauce. Sorry 'bout that.

    AE...yes you need to READ...the ham does not spoil. I've mailed it to out of state people many times.

    PAK, what a very thoughtful and classy offering for the auction. Such a nice addition and such a welcome break from "tradition" I hope to see more non CP items available. This is really great.
