During the hot season, which did not allow for air curing, in earlier times people began to cook the meat first and then lightly smoke it. This resulted in a good shelf life and a food product with an extraordinary taste and aroma.
To prepare the ham, the pork legs are first cut by our master butchers. They are then lightly salted and spiced according to an old tradition, and cooked very slowly. The hams are then lightly smoked over beech wood. Thanks to this treatment, the ham acquires a delicate aroma, its characteristic flavour and the meat remains particularly succulent.
The special herbal mixture after old traditional farm preion and smoking with selected, Sarntaler coniferous wood (mountain pine pine and juniper) give the "Original Grammhof Speck" the unique and unmistakeable taste.
Roasted it tastes especially good and is best served with sauerkraut or roast potatoes - suitably in addition a chill Bavarian beer.
The Mezet bacon disposes of a little bit more white bacon interest and is milder therefore and more delicately in the taste.
