Polish canned hams

Post by ssorllih » Mon Oct 31, 2011 22:03

At dinner last night we were discussing food and food quality and I said about this forum and its origins and the strict control that was in place during the years when Poland was exporting canned hams. They were always refrigerated and our guest remarked that as she recalled they were very good.
If I have read the parts about formed hams correctly I think that we can still get the quality that marked those canned imported hams if we can find pigs that were fed a similar diet.
The local Wegman's Supermarket has shoulder butts for sale through the end of the year for 1.29 per pound. I think it may be time for me to try that.

Thank you. We have some Polish speaking members.

Thank you Maxell! It's very nice of you to do this.
To our members: for those of you who do not know who Maxell is... please allow me to introduce Miroslaw Gebarowski, the author of "Polish Sausages" and founder of "Szkola Domowego Masarsiwa" - the school of domestic meat processing - the first of its kind anywhere in the world.
"Mirek" is a tremendous help to this forum and is certainly one of the foremost authorities in the world today regarding sausage making and meat production. Mirek has one of those personalities that makes him a friend to all. He is also a professional fire-fighter in Betchatow.
Both Mirek and Siara (Maciek) have certainly been true friends and a tremendous support to me as fellow moderators. Thanks guys!

My Best Wishes,
Chuckwagon
