Berkshire hogs are a heritage breed pig renowned for their full flavor. When third-generation ham curer extraordinaire Sam Edwards started using them instead of his standard pig stock, the results blew him away.
The thin slices of ham, eaten like Italian prosciutto or Spanish jamón serrano, are richer and more flavorful, with a melt in your mouth texture usually found only in the best European hams. The hams are dry cured and hickory smoked, and aged about 14-18 months. It comes sliced thin, like prosciutto.
Serve the ham as is, at room temperature, with a handful of Virginia Peanuts.
