I’ll make you a deal; you purchase the ham – make sure it’s minimally processed, and we’ll provide the fabulous Paleo meal and snack recipes. Traditionally, the art of curing and preserving pork was done via natural methods that are a far cry from todays’ highly processed ham products. Fortunately, you can still enjoy this delicious deli meat, as long as you can find a brand with recognizable ingredients. Companies such as Applegate source meat from humanely raised animals that aren’t treated with antibiotics or hormones and their ham is uncured and not preserved.
