Heritage pork has more marbling resulting in more tender and juicy meat
This is a dry-cured ham similar to Prosciutto di Parma, San Daniele or Serrano but lightly smoked. More than 100 years of tradition are behind this long-aged ham which is produced in Princeton, Kentucky, by Nancy Newsom.
Newsom’s traditional country ham cure is applied to the finest heritage breed pork. This is a bone-in free range country ham, aged 13-20 months. The clean pork flavor couples with Newsom’s age-old family curing process to create a premium aged, complex diversity like none other — layers of flavor pleasing to the palate.
As Nancy Newsom explains "It is our pleasure to offer you 'our best' from the smokehouse — the 'Highland House,' our age-old family relic — cured only with the prideful notion that we have done our best for you and nature finished the rest."
Serve as you would any Spanish or Italian ham. Slice thin – slicing thinly is the key to enjoying and appreciating long-aged cured ham. A little bit goes a long way. Wrap and store in your refrigerator — this ham has an incredibly long shelf life.
