    Steve was replying to Pussy Katz. Pussy had made the completely ignorant
    (and yet typical for Pussy) assertion that the method used to make "city"
    hams wasn't a cure, it was a pickle.

    I love pickles. As long as they're dill and garlic. Wait. That
    would be weird on ham.

    Certainly you use a threaded newsreader. Don't go Katz on me.

    Shedon wants to let the ham sit at room temp for 2-3 weeks and
    wait until it ferments, just like a pickle. I think that's what
    he was trying to say, at least <shrug>

    I'd already deleted the first half the thread and it wasn't worth
    googling.

    I never delete anything. I've got all my text groups going back
    at least 4 years. That way I can go back and finger point: "Back
    in 1999 you said..." without having to rely on the lame
    Deja-Google.

    ObFood: Veal piccata for dinner tonight. Cadbury Creme Eggs for
    dessert.
