I think meat on the bone dates from Medieval Times.

You mean walking to the fridge and back won't do it?

Well if you can cope with potentially knocking 5 minutes off your life Nance. I always knew you were a bit of a gambler.

See that's the thing. The pig would squeal and I'd feel bad and I'd have to go hungry. A cured ham once a year is the least of my sins.

@Kewpie, you are absolutely correct although for the holidays I bought a cured ham and I'm inhaling--I mean eating it in a lady-like manner. I forgot how good that stuff was! If I ate cured bacon I'd probably faint dead away. :-))

They both are, but just as with ham I usually buy uncured.

No, no, no! Skip the ham. Eat the bone. Now that's paleo.

"Ham of the bone" might be the best thing I've ever heard of.

I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't be paleo. It's meat. That said, I'd definitely look for an uncured ham. Cured meats can have questionable additives (like nitrates and nitrites) that I prefer to avoid. The final product will also be far less salty, even if you choose to brine it yourself before cooking.

I feel like I'm at a carnival and just walked into the house of mirrors. I look at myself and think "Do I feel lucky?"

Ham is as paleo as bacon, but they're both processed foods loaded with preservatives, coloring and stabilizers. I think they're paleo because they're meat and not because they're ancestral or even all that healthy. The way to make them more paleo is to walk five miles to get them. Setting up a smoker and doing it yourself will further improve your paleo odds.

Use some common sense. Meat off the bone is practically the definition of paleo.

If bacon is paleo, then why not ham?

Everything is permitted. It may just not be as good for you in the long run and sinking your teeth into the pig while it's still wriggling.
