Shaved from boneless ham, cured with natural flavours and naturally wood smoked.
The children loved this ham. It is lower in salt than most, and the slightly sweet flavour appealed to both of them. Miss Seven immediately decanted some of the slices into her lunchbox so she would have it ready to take to school next day if there was any left over. Unfortunately for her, there wasn't - with five of us testing it in two different ways, it all got used up.
We tried some first as part of a platter of hors d'oeuvres. We had some tiny red capsicums stuffed with cream cheese and a few black olives, so the ham was rolled and secured with toothpicks so it would look attractive beside them. That did not last long; by the time we had all tasted some there was none left! The adults liked it too - with two of us on a low salt diet anyway, it was nice to find a ham product that we could enjoy.
We put the rest on to pizza bases with pineapple, mozzarella cheese, and tomato paste, and heated it gently till the cheese had started to brown and the bases were cooked. Hawai'ian pizza is the children's favourite, but we all enjoyed it. Sometimes the pizzas made this way are too strong for the children but with this ham there was no fat or salt overload; just a delicious combination of mild, creamy topping and crisp base. Mr Nine was hungry but we still found there were two pieces left at the end of the meal.
Later that afternoon Mr Nine and I finished the cold slices. Cold pizza is either delicious or disgusting, depending on the original ingredients. In this case it was delicious. The ham flavour had intensified as the slices had cooled, and if anything they were even nicer cold. They would be excellent in a school lunchbox because they would travel well and hold their shape, and would provide a filling snack for a growing child on a cold day.
I thought the price was extremely good for a 200g pack. It was enough for the five of us, but if we had not used it in one go, an opened pack will keep for three days in the fridge. This is useful to know if there is ever any left over. Freezing is possible of course but that could affect the flavour; I would prefer to know there is an option to just use it up over a couple of days. And certainly, for anyone living on their own, this could be a selling point.
