Cook's bone-in natural ham $1.47
* about 10 lbs or $15 for a shank potion and a bit less for the butt.
Gee, so very lucky! Other years, we've been able to get this for under $4/kg. Cheapest next week is 5.50/kg (two store brands - wish it were Cook's), and I need it for Easter.

Candidate for a chamber sealer.
Then to defrost, just frozen sealed breasts in a bowl of cold water.
Oh for the love of deity no.

Here in the Vancouver area of BC the normal sale price is $3 /lb. that is 26 something for a 4kg box.
we will buy about 4 boxes at that price if we have freezer room
we hope it goes on sale every 4-6 weeks.
this is from Safeway.
save-on sometimes has 3 and 4kg boxes that go for the same $3 per pound on a good sale.
occasionally if we cannot find any good sales we will get a box from Costco for more per pound.
US frozen chicken is strangely far too big pieces, it is not that much cheaper with the exchange and not worth it for us.
lately it has been hard to find a frozen sale but there has been fresh chicken breasts for $4/lb.

Actually I'd be willing to bet this was their plan all along.Discombobulator wrote: ↑Apr 8th, 2017 6:24 pmYeah that's the way they do it at Walmart.
Today, all the Maple Leaf ones for $10 ranged between 0.7kg to 0.83kg. I really don't understand it, it's like they decreased the variability to a narrower range, but it's hit and miss; recently, some weeks it's between 0.7 to 1.3 as i mentioned, and some weeks the range is narrower. I'm really hoping they haven't "caught on" and reduced the weight going forward.
Got me... every store has stupid names for things. It's not an "official" name as per the government http://www.inspection.gc.ca/food/meat-a ... 471777#lmc

I'm not sure if there's any real value to a grocery cheat sheet that is scattered across several provinces with totally different population income and living conditions that greatly affect local prices. Any thoughts?
