Taylor Ham

March 21st, 2013 at 07:49 pm

There are a few things that I take for granted living in the New York metropolitan area: 1) Great pizza with an always perfect crust and no really crazy toppings; 2) Perfect bagels, fresh off the conveyor belt at Rockland Bakery; and 3) Taylor Ham in the grocery stores.

I don't even particularly like Taylor Ham, but I never realized how tough it was to get in other parts of the country. My sister moved to Massachusettes several years back. Every time we visit she asks us to bring boxes of taylor ham, because she can't get it up there.

DS and I are going to Boston this weekend and are staying with her, so I picked up 29 boxes at the store today, which she'll use or freeze. It's a small price to pay relative to what a hotel would cost, but I did feel pretty silly with 29 boxes on the conveyor belt.

Are there any local delicacies from your hometown that you can't get in other parts of the country?

Other than the expenditure for the taylor ham, not much else financial going on. This weekend will be pricey, including some eating out in Boston, and gas for the car. DS has really been looking forward to this trip though, and it will be a great opportunity for some 1-on-1 time for me and him, so it will be well worth every dime.

And I know one meal we won't be eating out: Breakfast. I'm thinking taylor ham and eggs at my sister's, LOL!

    Never heard of it!

    I have trouble finding Stouffer's Welsh Rarebit -- which I used to get regularly when I lived in North Carolina. I can't duplicate the taste with my own recipe. Every once in a while I will see some in the freezer section and buy them all. Then they're gone again. Frown
    I'm sure your New York pizza is very nice, but, really, it can't possibly be better than Chicago pizza. Smile

    Kringle - it's a pastry. They ship all over the country though. I'm in SouthEast Wisconsin.
