For The Love Of Taylor Ham
“People who live in New Jersey all their lives, and then move to states that don’t even border the Garden State, are often in for a rude surprise. There’s no Taylor ham.
Some people compare it to Canadian bacon, some say it’s a richer cousin of Spam. Others say there is just no comparison. One thing is sure. Taylor ham is a staple of life in New Jersey. Go in any Jersey diner for breakfast and you will have your choice of eggs, any style, with bacon, sausage or Taylor ham. If you don’t want eggs, you can have a Taylor ham sandwich on a hard roll, on toast, with pancakes, or any other way you can think of, with or without cheese.” - Valerie Ferrari
