The annual family reunion here at the old homeplace draws nigh.
Not only do folks look forward to visiting, but everyone, I think, looks forward to the country ham that my parents always prepare.
It's slow food at its best...local pork, rubbed with a salt/sugar seasoning back in the winter, then set aside to absorb the flavors for months, even years.
Mom's special glaze and baked til it's tender.
You can't buy this treat in a restaurant. That's why we look forward to it all year long!
Above, the cows on the farm encourage us to "Eat more pork!"
