I like a good bargain on ham. We have sales now and then for ham and I buy them. I know that years ago they listed that the ham is “water added” or injected with 10% “of a solution”. And I didn’t care because it was .99 a pound. OK, so yesterday I’m looking for a ham for Easter. They’re on sale everywhere. Note on the label says, “23% of the weight is added ingredients”. 23% of the weight?! Good grief that’s almost a quarter of the dumb thing–not taking into account the bone! Now you frugally-type people will appreciate this. I decided to find out what I’m actually paying for the ham itself without all the extra stuff. $1.43. I’m paying $1.43 per lb. for my $.99/lb ham which is a hidden markup of 44%. I am now in search of real ham for $1.43/lb. I’ll let you know if it exists. And by the way, if you buy split bone-in chicken breast for .99/lb, you may as well pay $1.99 for the sale on boneless, skinless since you will throw away 1/2 the weight of the split in bone, fat and other junk. I’m just going to stop there.
