Ham: 4 Things you need To Know about it

Did you know that ham might have been produced back in Ancient Rome? It’s said that in 1st century B.C. it was Marcus Terentius Varro who described the technology of ham making in his own work. It turns out today’s delicacy has a much longer history than we expect! So, we are pretty sure people must know what they eat, let’s see what else we’ve got to learn about ham, shall we?!
  1. First of all, although ham traditionally comes from the European countries, it definitely has a worldwide popularity. Of course, each nation has its own understanding of what ham is. However, the basic product usually derives from dried leg of pork or from venison. Despite this, today you can often find ham from turkey or chicken. Whatever you choose, you have to know that the higher the price, the better the quality. prosciutto
  2. In case you would like to get deeper here, then we can give you some hints about how people actually procude ham. Usually the pork meat is being salted and placed on a rack, which is specially designed to preserve the meat. The salting process lasts for about 40-45 minutes after which people take the ham out and let it cure. It doesn’t seem to be that hard, huh!? ham curing
  3. Here’s a few advice on how to properly store your ham! Firstly, whether it’s from the supermarket or from an online store, make sure to buy it chilled with a visible expiry date. Then you may store it in a refrigerator for about 2 to 3 days. Of course, if you have a vacuum-packaged ham it may last for up to one week or so. We’re pretty sure you won’t let it stay this long, though, as it’s tasty as hell! vacuum-packaged ham
  4. Luckily (for us!), ham as an end product is quite 'famous' in culinary art. You can put it on almost any kind of meal and it will make it so good! For example, except for the traditional sandwiches, ham is often a part of salads, pizza, vegetable dishes and even sauces. However, you’ll undoubtedly fall in love with a bunch of mini puff pastry pies with ham and cheese. So delicious!
