Products made by Southern Hands were featured in one of the holiday shopping guides produced by Southern Living magazine in 2011. Col. Bill Newsom's Aged Kentucky Country Ham was honored with inclusion on the list just 10 southern food gems.
The November 2011 edition of Southern Living listed these special deliveries — mail order treats to simplify the holiday season, recommending as well that many of the products would make great hostess gifts.
The Southern Living guide recommended "Kentucky Country Ham — serve up Princeton-made Col. Bill Newsom's Aged Kentucky Country Ham on a small biscuit as a pre-Thanksgiving dinner app (to help keep the hands of your nibbling family members off your beautiful turkey)."
Of course, many ham lovers may reverse the order with turkey as the appetizer and a beautiful cooked country ham as the holiday main course!
