Speck Ham 100g
Speck is a type of cured, lightly smoked dense ruddy ham. It’s typically made in South Tyrol, a province in northeast Italy known for its snow-capped Dolomite mountains and strong German-Austrian influence. Although a close cousin to prosciutto crudo, speck is worthy of its own distinction when it comes to cured hams.
Unlike its “prosciutto crudo” cousin, speck tends to be browner in color and much denser. It’s well-marbled with a highly elastic texture and deep flavour. It has a savoury, smoky taste that’s laced with spices like juniper and bay leaf. On the nose, it gives off aromas reminiscent of the mountains.
