Snake River Farms wants to make your Easter especially hammy.
The Idaho-based specialty meat company produces extraordinary Wagyu beef and Kurobuta pork, which I’ve had the good fortunate of trying many times in the past. For Easter, they’re teaming with Tree Top to entice you to bake your ham with a sweet, tangy apple juice glaze this upcoming holiday.
Contest: To whet your appetite even more, one very lucky Food Gal reader will win a half bone-in ham from Snake River Farms ($99 value), along with a basket of Tree Top goodies and a recipe for the perfect glaze.
Entries, limited to those in the continental United States, will be accepted through midnight PST March 31. Winner will be announced April 2.
How to win?
Just tell me about a time when you’ve really hammed it up. Best answer wins.
Here’s my own response:
“I’m not the world’s most demonstrative person, but I actually did do karaoke once in my life — up on stage in front of a bunch of co-workers from the newspaper. I’m sure a few glasses of wine were involved. Flanked by my two gal-pals, Lori and Barbara, we managed to dig up enough courage to perform our best rendition of ‘Stop in the Name of Love.’ I can’t say that any of us has a voice worth speaking of. But we gave it our best shot, complete with choreographed arm movements, where we’d hold our hand out with gusto every time we belted out the word, ‘stop.’ The real Supremes, no doubt, would have been impressed. At the end, we did get some rather hearty applause. Hopefully, it wasn’t just to nudge us off the stage.”
