Another where-to-find query...

  • d

You guys are awesome - I had my Scotch egg and there was much rejoicing (insert Monty Python-type rejoicing here).

Now my quest, as a good and loyal son of the East, is to find Taylor ham. It is kind of a drier ham, but not what would be considered pork roll. It's very salty but it's not thick-sliced prosciutto, it's not Canadian bacon, and it's not salame of any sort.

It goes GREAT on fried-egg-and-cheese sandwiches on hard rolls (another hard-to-find commodity out here). But I can't find it! I will be importing some when I go back to Perth Amboy in three weeks but I would like to find a local source for it.
