Ham for Thanksgiving. Where do I buy in SF?
I used to buy Cook's whole hams at Cala Foods, but they're no longer around (mostly). I'm looking for a place to get a good ham. Any advice on what to get or where? Most hams are undelicious: overly salty or sweet.
I'm sure other markets carry Cook's ham...I used to get them from Cala and smoke them on my gas BBQ. I have never liked spiral hams (usually taste like cardboard), but last Xmas my daughter's boss gave her a Costco spiral ham, and it was excellent. If you really want good ham, check out Smithfield Collection in Virginia. Real, real ham.
Last year we bought a ham from Costco and it was actually really good. Comparable, if not better than Honeybaked.
I have been getting my ham at Guerra's for a few years now. The hams are from Iowa and have a deep and rich flavor.
