Cooked Country Ham
Finchville Farms has the best cooked country ham that you will find. Located in Finchville, Kentucky. It all started in 1947 with 25 hams. William H. Robertson, Sr. was the owner of a small country grocery store in Finchville, Kentucky. Looking for something new to add to his store, Mr. Robertson began curing and selling hams to his Finchville neighbors. Mr. Robertson began curing so many hams, that he was able to discontinue selling groceries and focus solely on the country ham business.
Finchville Farms Country Ham is sugar-cured and naturally aged to acquire that genuine old-fashioned flavor. We Do Not Use Nitrates or Nitrites in the Curing Process. Each ham is hand rubbed with a special blend of salt, sugar, red and black pepper to bring out the finest flavor. Once cooked package is open, store the remaining ham in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped to prevent the ham from drying out. Unlike other meats, cooked, cured ham will keep in the refrigerator up to one month.
CITY HAM VS. COUNTRY HAM
“Ham is ham”, you say. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. CITY ham, found in most supermarkets, is usually mild tasting with water added. This means the salt and cure are dissolved in water and pumped into the meat. COUNTRY ham is dry-cured, a time honored tradition where the hams are packed in salt and slowly cured and aged. The salt draws out the meat’s moisture, yielding a firmer, very flavorful finished product.
