what a boar!

The word "ham" is derived from the Olde English ham or hom meaning the hollow or bend of the knee.

It is, afterall, a pig’s hind leg. 
Under US law, a "ham" is a cured thigh of pork that is at least 20.5% protein, and contains no added water.

But check this out. 
This is a “ham and water product.”


"Ham and water product" refers to a cured pork product that contains any amount of added water as long as it is mentioned on the label.

It was, but I missed it. 23%!

This sad excuse for a steak cooked down to three fourth’s its original size. 

So at $4.99 a pound, I purchased 3 ounces of water for $1.24!

Have a great weekend!
