    Is Ham primal?

    Shop Now
    I'm not talking about the sugar cured ham, or the Honey baked ham. I'm referring to a Black forrest ham of some sort. I know Mark just recently posted a blog about if in a jam deli meat straight from the deli, where they cut the meat into slices is ok... but not to make this a crutch. Would this be considered the same thing? I thought about making my own ham, but can't seem to find one that isn't already covered with sugar or honey..

    I think you'd have to go to the butcher in order to make your own. Black forest has got to be my favorite ham (bacon's pretty close, though!)
    I don't see a problem with eating deli meat, period, as long as it's in moderation. To me, meat is meat. I just try to get uncured, sugar free stuff

    Sorry, but I'm a bit confused with this statement. There is no problem with eating Deli meat... but eat it in moderation?

    I have found that roast beef is one of the best deli options for minimal additives. Ham seems to be one of the worst. Now having said that - dh came home the other day with a package of 'natural' ham and lo! there was no sucrose, sugar, cane juice, detrose, etc. Just ham and water. That was oddly exciting. I'll eat lunch meat in a pinch, but it has so many additives that I usually stay away unless I find myself in a grocery store needing something very quick.

    I buy Applegate deli meats. Gluten free and casein free. Delicious. I think it's fine.

    Yes. Just like there's no problem with chocolate. It should just be enjoyed in moderation

    Ham ordered from the butcher is pure heaven.

    What about Boar's Head deli meat? I know there's no fillers, gluten, artificial flavors, colors or trans fat...
    ..
    I'm just trying to find different ideas for lunches.

    It's good. I eat it. That said, it has a bunch of sodium so I don't eat too much. Is it the best 'primal' option, perhaps not, but it wont cause you go straight to primal hell.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    Curing my own ham this week!

    I have a pork leg roast thawing in the fridge. Probably by tomorrow I'll start up the cure.
    Here's my recipe, How To Cure Ham at Home, It's Easier Than You Think! Wet Curing (Brine) Ham Instructions and Tips.

    I know, I know, the brine calls for 1 cup brown sugar.. I think I'll live

    Any other home cured ham recipes out there? More Primal than mine?
