SALTY AND DELICIOUS: COUNTRY HAM WITH RED EYE GRAVY


Our friends at the Communal Skillet have tested one of SFA's favorite recipes: country ham with red eye gravy.  What's country ham?  Salt cured ham, occasionally smoked, created before the days of refrigeration to extend the shelf life of the pork.  Some of SFA's favorite country hams are cured by friends who also cure bacon -- see our bacon oral histories to find a few ham curers (conveniently, many places cure both items) if you get a hankering for ham after reading the Communal Skillet's recipe.
