Ham   is   pork   from   a   leg   cut   that   has   been   preserved   by   either   wet   or   dry   curing and   with   or   without   smoking.   As   a   processed   meat,   the   term   "Ham"   includes both   whole   cuts   of   meat   and   ones   that   have   been   mechanically   formed   which are   almost   always   made   using   cuts   of   pork   other    than   a   leg   cut.   Ham   is   made around    the    world,    including    a    vast    number    of    regional    specialties.    The preserving   of   a   pork   leg   as   Ham   has   a   long   history,   with   Cato   the   Elder   writing about   the   "salting   of   Hams"   in   his   De   Agri   Cultura   tome   around   160   BC.   “We” have   basically   two   cuts   of   Ham:   Shank   portion   and   the   Butt   portion.   The Shank   has   less   lean   meat,   but   is   by   far   the   tenderest.   Salt   cured   (Country Ham)   requires   extensive   rinsing   prior   to   consumption   to   remove   most   of   the Salt. Sugar Cured (City Ham) may be consumed as-is.

Ham is pork from a leg cut that has been preserved by either wet or dry curing and with or without smoking. As a processed meat, the term "Ham" includes both whole cuts of meat and ones that have been mechanically formed which are almost always made using cuts of pork other than a leg cut. Ham is made around the world, including a vast number of regional specialties. The preserving of a pork leg as Ham has a long history, with Cato the Elder writing about the "salting of Hams" in his De Agri Cultura tome around 160 BC. “We” have basically two cuts of Ham: Shank portion and the Butt portion. The Shank has less lean meat, but is by far the tenderest. Salt cured (Country Ham) requires extensive rinsing prior to consumption to remove most of the Salt. Sugar Cured (City Ham) may be consumed as-is.
