    Default Walmart Ham


    Don't blow me crap on this post, There are some of us that need to watch
    our budgets, there is a ham at Walmart which is not a ground up and pressed
    luncheon meat type product, it is ham, it's called Kentucky Ledgend and
    goes for $3.19 per pound here in the Carolina's. No bone so I have the Deli
    slice it for more. I know it's not an authentic Virginia ham but for us
    common folks this is a great deal, cheaper than the pressed ham and other
    luncheon meats which sell for much more! This post is not for those with
    their noses up in the air! Just a notice for those who want the best they
    can afford and have real food and not processed to the extreme.

    I don't shop Walmart, so I've never seen the product, but good to know
    that they have "real" (as opposed to pressed) ham. People on a budget
    shouldn't always have to eat junk.

    And if you think it tastes good, that's all that matters.

    Went to Walmart this morning. Bought two watermelons for $4.48 each.
    Got some peaches and nectarines for 99 cents a pound (really good this
    year) and some green onions for $1 a bunch.

    I get chopped ham for making BBQ Chipped Ham Sandwiches for
    $1.99/lb at HEB. Boiled/baked ham is $3.49/lb (25% water added).
    Walmart's is a "Ham and Water Product".

    Try the Cob-Smoked Ham at the Walmart Deli instead ($4/lb here in
    Austin). 1 of only 3 things I buy at Walmart grocery store.

    Watch for wet cured ham sales at regular grocery stores. Especially
    near big holidays like Christmas and Easter. In the last year I've
    seen it as low as $1.69 per pound, bone in. When I got it home it was
    water injected but after draining it was still a good deal.

    Buy Virginia ham do you mean the dry cured country hams? When I visit
    the older daughter and younger granddaughter in Arkansas I watch for
    signs along the highway in Arkansas and Missouri advertizing low prices
    on country hams. I can get a country ham here in Chicago metro for $7
    per pound but I've seen at at roadside stores for half that.

    I buy my whole boneless hams at the grocery store, and I'm sorry to
    say they've been $4.29/lb (full price) lately, but sometimes they have
    them on sale for about 1/2 price! I love it when I find that.

    Still, $4.29/lb is a lot cheaper than the sliced lunch meat at their
    deli.

    What's the Ham per lb.? I may have to check that.
    I like it when local whole hams go under $1.29 per lb. The skins and
    bones are killer for making ham stock for lentils, beans or split peas.

    I must post that ham stock series to Picasa. Ham stock is awesome! I
    set it overnight to defat it, then shred the cooked skins to use in the
    final legume recipe.

    The only drawback is that it's a bit high in sodium...

    Drink soda water to get rid of the sodium.

    The ham is $4.95/lb and I ate two in the car.

    Smithfield brand wet-cured hams in natural juice are $1.39/lb
    shank, $1.49/butt portion everyday price here. You can get a
    whole ham for $1.29/lb during holidays.

    November, we're getting a super WalMart in town, and I can't wait !

    The two main grocers in town have had a captive consumers
    and they set their prices accordingly.
    Every grocery run produces sticker-shock.

    Price-shopping at another WalMart shows most items
    to be at least a quarter cheaper.... For some, up to a buck.

    Yaaaay...WalMart !

    That's a boy, keep cheering for wallyworld while they import 90% of
    their **** from overseas (mostly china) while helping to kill off
    manufacturing jobs in the US. The products in the 10% are American but
    wallyworld forces them to make it for the cheapest price point
    possible. This eventually kills off the remaining manufacturing jobs,
    then you'll get chinese made crap all the time on their shelves, but
    you'll save a quarter so it's all good right?

    You miss my point;
    Our local ( American? ) stores
    were screwing the customers, "because they could"

    Sorry guy... a tight food budget has no allegiance.
    And a can of "WalMart" corn tastes as good as a can of "GreenGiant"
    For close to a half-a-buck less.

    BTW; check some of the labels at your "murrican" store.
    Too much of it is from Asia or Mexico/South America
    Other products hide country of origin with a "Distributed By" label.
