Hams aid fight against hunger


December 03, 2003|By Liz Atwood | Liz Atwood,Sun Staff

Buy a ham this holiday season and help the hungry in America. For the 14th year, Hormel is offering its Hams for Hunger program.

Consumers who buy qualifying Hormel Foods meat from participating supermarkets help grocers earn certificates for Hormel's Cure 81 hams. The certificates then are donated to hunger charities, most of which are part of America's Second Harvest network of food banks and food rescue programs. Hormel Foods matches the donation of every ham earned and donated.

Giant and Super Fresh stores in the Baltimore area are participating in the program, which runs until Dec. 27.

Horseradish for the holidays

What's the holiday smorgasbord without horseradish?

The folks at Gold's, who have been making horseradish since 1932, have found a half-dozen ways to add horseradish to condiments. Among the products: ketchup with horseradish, barbecue sauce with horseradish and steak sauce with horseradish. And, of course, there is still Gold's original recipe.

Prices of horseradish and sauces range from 99 cents to $2.39. Look for Gold's products in your supermarket.

Tasty temptations

Red Envelope puts a new twist on sinfully delicious with its new collection of chocolates.

The English candies come individually wrapped in boxes labeled with the seven deadly sins. Who would have guessed that anger is a white-chocolate praline or that pride is a milk-chocolate-coffee truffle?

The 5.25-ounce box with 14 pieces is listed at $30 on the Web: www.redenvelope.com.
