One thing we never saw here was jowl bacon, the foreman always said it was too expensive to sell in the midwest. 90% of the true pork tenderloin was packed in 10 lb. boxes and shipped straight to Japan with all the writing on the box in French. We were all union Amalgamated meat packers and butcher workmen. Some of the best times in my life. Thought about it this morning as I cut up some ham for a bean soup this morning.
