Review of Appleton Honey Cooked Ham

What can you say about processed ham?

I was hoping this ham would have a tinge of the honey promised on the label, but it didn’t. It was tasy, though. The one thing I like about cooked ham like this is the uniformity of it. It’s a rectangle, so there’s no guessing as to what it will fit on or what it won’t.

There are two cautions about this ham:

  1. Water content: It seems to have a ton of water in it. When I microwaved it to act as a bed for my scrambled eggs, I was left with a fine puddle of water. A paper towel took care of that, but it is a little messy.
  2. Sodium content: The sodium content for one slice is 320mg, which is about 15% of your daily total. The funny thing is that it doesn’t taste salty, at least when you heat it.

You can buy this ham at Aldi, it’s their store brand. It retails for less than $2.00, so it’s a deal.
