One of the most popular deli meats in North America, Black Forest Ham has been a mainstay at meat counters all over the country since the early 60s. First invented in the Black Forest region of Germany by Hans Alder, the fame of this singularly delicious cured meat spread rapidly. With its near-black exterior and bright pink insides, this lovely meat offers not only a unique flavor profile but a unique look as well. Taking almost three months to perfect before it's ready for market Black Forest Ham undergoes a lengthy process consisting of first seasoning then curing, before it's aged, cold-smoked, and aged again. But its universal popularity among all who try it seems to act as a testament that the results are well worth the effort. Try some for yourself by ordering from Gourmet Food Store today!
