If youíre ever in the Tampa area, Mr. Dunderbakís has a small deli section with plenty of the real stuff from Europe. Also (arguably) the best beer bar in the area.

Whatís the difference between black forest ham and regular ham?

Subway switched the name of itís ham from just ham to black forest ham at some point, and it tastes like the same exact thing (turkey processed to taste somewhat like ham, which is what it is :)). I assume thatís like when some brewers label something an IPA and it doesnít even taste remotely like the real thing, though. Whatís the real black forest ham taste like?

Whatís the real black forest ham taste like?


It is cured porc thigh. Pretty much like prosciutto or serrano. However it is heavily (and uniquely spiced) during the curing process (with many spices, juniper berries, and other stuff) giving it a very distinct aroma. While prosciutto for example has a mild fragrant aroma of the porc, b.forest ham has this rustic spicy aroma, in the taste however the porc and spices are very balanced.
In Europe the name is protected , unfortunately in the states,Canada,etc you can pretty much call any similar crap , b.forest so I would suggest trying to find an imported one.

Cheers,

Alex
