Geier's Black Forest Schinken Ham is the stunningly tasty Original Black Forest Ham which takes regional ingredients, traditional recipes and more than three months to be processed and refined. This results in ham with a unique color and a pronounced taste that is spicy, smoky and highly aromatic.
“Schwarzwälder Schinken” (German for “Black Forest ham”) is best enjoyed in thin slices, with some fresh bread, fresh fruit or as an ingredient of cooked dishes. As the ham unfolds its full aroma when left outside at normal room temperature, it is recommended to open the package 5 to 10 minutes prior to eating. Until then, store in a cool room (39°F - 64°F). This ham is non-GMO, Lactose Free and Gluten Free.
Black Forest ham is made from selected gammon (trimmed hind leg of pork). It is finely seasoned in accordance with traditional recipes and salted by hand, after which it remains in “salt” for a couple of weeks, curing in fresh mountain air. Subsequent to this, the ham is smoked with a mixture of green pine twigs, sawdust and wood chips made of Black Forest fir trees. In the course of the smoking period, which lasts approximately three weeks, the ham then obtains its typical smoky color. Once this has been completed, the ham has to rest and mature: after 12 weeks the ham is ready for consumption.
