Family gatherings at my grandma’s house in North Carolina always featured country ham. This ham was different from the regular ham we’d get at the grocer’s deli counter. It was richer, drier, and somehow…hammier. Lady Edison Extra-Fancy Country Ham brings me back to my grandma’s kitchen every time I enjoy a slice. This savory ham is dry-cured, unsmoked and aged for a minimum of two years, per the old tradition. Natural peaks and valleys in temperature and humidity throughout the aging process help to develop the rich flavor and unique character that sets this prize-winning ham apart from the rest. It’s my favorite charcuterie go-to.
Lady Edison sources 100% pasture-raised hogs exclusively from the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association, a collection of 19 small family farms that are Animal Welfare Approved for promoting traditional, sustainable farming practices.
As Director of Food Service, I get a behind-the-scenes look at the creativity and care that going into the creation of our prepared foods and the selection of our perishable foods, such as cheese. I can honestly say that we make the most flavorful, unique and lifestyle-conscious foods found at a grocery store – it’s restaurant quality (or better) for you to enjoy on the go or from the comfort of home.
