Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...6 of these hams, while in 1 the souring had not extended through to the bone marrow. Tierce No. 2.--Contained 20 hams which were chilled and pumped in exactly the fame manner as those in tierce No. 1. These hams were injected with culture after they had been chilled and pumped, or just before they were placed in cure. The hams in this tierce, therefore, were injected with culture four days later than those in tierce 1. The hams were injected with a bacterial suspension prepared in the same manner as that used for tierce 1, except that the egg-pork cultures from which the suspension was prepared were 7 days instead of 10 days old.

Of the 10 hams which were pumped in both body and shank 6 were sour in the body. These hams were classed by the meat inspector who examined them as "light body sours," and in none of them did the souring extend into the shank or through the bone into the bone marrow of the femur. Tierce No. 3.--Contained 20 hams which were chilled and pumped in the same manner as those in the two preceding tierces. These hams were not injected with culture and were put down to serve as checks on the cure.
