favorite hams...prosciutto? serrano? american country? chinese?

augustiner | Jan 9, 2009 03:24 AM

a month or so ago i tasted an american smoked country ham sliced "raw" like prosciutto, which was delicious. i bought a bit of prosciutto later on, and just bought a stash of serrano ham, from spain. i like them all.

i've heard about another spanish ham where the pigs are fed on a diet of acorns, and the cost is exponential. i'm not in a position to try this one out, financially. but i'm curious....

of all of the wolds best known hams, which are your favorites? do you lean towards spain, or italy, or france, or the US, or china, which apparently makes a fantastic ham that isn't available here in the US? or some other version which i've never heard of or tasted? what are your favorites, and why?
