Black Forest Ham

In Europe, “Black Forest ham” is a protected term indicative of a particular geographical origin and method of preparation: the name is applied only to those hams from Germany’s Black Forest region that have been cured and cold smoked with a distinctive flavoring.

In the United States, on the other hand, there are no such restrictions on the use of the term—but it’s still delicious.
