|My empty first glass at Jared and Amy's house, July 2011.|
My dad had never tried Jared's beer and home-brewed beer made by a man who grows his own hops is just the sort of thing that entertains my father-- a man who cures his own hams in his basement using his Great-Uncle Elwood's recipe.
So off we went to Jared and Amy's house with a package of freshly sliced country ham. To be more specific, we took Jared and Amy part of a ham that had been hanging in my dad's basement for a year and a half. So it was old ham (at it's peak, if you ask me), but freshly cooked and sliced.
