I consider jamón ibérico to be a subset of jamón serrano. It is prepared using a similar method, but it comes from ibérico pigs.

And it's delish.

Chorizo.

Like I was sayin', chorizo is the fruit of the deli counter. You can fry it, sauté it, grill it, top a pizza with it, put it in jambalaya, swirl it in camembert, spice up a stew, that's... that's about it.

Dude, prosciutto is the poor attempt at jamón making when you don't have the right kind of pork or the right kind of climate.

Like that jambon de Bayonne. A for effort, C for execution.

Right
You have to compare by prices also.
One's an industrial product - well most of it
The other is an ultra gourmet product.
I've eaten Jambon but @ € 400,- / Kg is not really popular-priced.
:rotfl:


I buy mine at 30-50€/kg for the everyday type.

But then again I live in the right country.

Not to be pedantic, but Spam isn't a cured meat. Is it even meat?

I've always considered Spam to be the original pink slime. I'd rather go veggie than eat Spam.

I think there needs to be a distinction between cured meat and processed the fuck out of meat (in the case of SPAM). Though I do every now and then crave a bologna sandwich, but I end up splurging and getting the Boar's Head sliced thin from the deli for no other reason than the cheap stuff is always sliced too thick for my tastes.

With that thought in mind maybe bologna is in fact the correct cured meat?

Call me old school if you will, but corned beef gets my vote - there are few things on Earth more gastronomically satisfying than a Reuben sandwich. You could substitute pastrami but then it's not a proper Reuben

Spam could theoretically be called meat technically...

it could however also be technically found to be a crime against humanity so... :P

Spam really became a thing in the South Pacific during WWII because it was a good way to keep meat from spoiling without needing a lot of refrigeration in an era when shipments from the USA could take weeks.

Saw it at my deli and thought I'd give it a shot.

Very disappointed. Beautiful texture and just the right moisture content.

But the aftertaste was very porky, not in a good way.

A cheaper locally made prosciutto was way nicer.

Guess that means more jamon Serrano for you doc.

Montreal-smoked meat. Beef brisket that is brined, cured with a variety of spices for at least a week, then hot smoked and steamed. Served hand-sliced on rye bread with plenty of mustard, a pickle, and with a side of hand cut fries and coleslaw. Then, the only proper and traditional drink to go alongside is a Cherry Coke.

And the only proper place for this is Schwartz's in Montreal.

Find it funny when vegans/vegetarians hate on meat, then try and recreate things like pepperoni and burgers :lol:

I can find appetising versions of vegetables too, but that might be a bit misleading....

Prosciutto just means ham. There are all kinds of it, obviously.

I'm not too difficult about ham, as long as it's uncooked (or then I want it hot roasted on the bone). Spanish, French, Italian, all fine by me. I hear the Corsican one is good but have never tried it.

If it's rare and expensive I would fear getting something fake. For example the ham is made in the right country but the animal comes from Germany or Eastern Europe.

Is dried fruit intentionally rotted fruit?

Took me a while to find a vegan equivalence. Turns out your can smoke fruit, too. Might do it some time.
