At £257.14 a kilo it must make one heck of a sandwich! click here

This ham might have an "melt-in-the-mouth texture" but as a smoker,I wouldn't be able to distinguish it from a packet of processed rubbish costing 50p.So I to will continue to chomp on spam until I finally succeed in quitting smoking. :)

I like me SPAM Lite, but it's £1.88 a tin in Morrisons and Asda atm. Getting very expensive imo.

It would be a terrible thing if you made a sandwich with it and, whilst you were in the cupboard getting the Maille Moutarde de Dijon,the dog ate it.

I stopped eating pork products about 6 years ago. I did have some bacon about 3 years ago - it just tasted like salt. Thing i'll steer clear of this and go for some kobe beef instead. Yumm!

Kobe beef eh? 'The cattle are fed a beer a day, and they are massaged with sake daily' from Wikipedia.

but when you think about the amount of care taken from breeding right through to the curing, it is actually amazing value."

I don't personally think that £1800 for a leg of ham is actually amazing value, I think it's an outrageous price for meat that comes from a pig that was allowed to roam over fields eating acorns and roots.

Acorns and roots don't strike me as particularly expensive pig food - the people who buy this ham must be those things beginning with 'F' who are easily parted from their money.

That's the one. I've never heard of sake massages? There's a few places in the UK that sell it, but orders tend to have to be placed months in advance. It does cost a penny or two as well! Tastes good though :)
