Fra' Mani Rosemary Ham comprises three attached major muscles of the pork leg - inside round, outside round and eye of the round. The legs are graded for size and then trimmed carefully on all sides, leaving a thin layer of flavorful cover fat on the outside round portion. This ham has an appealing light pink complexion and is seasoned with rosemary.
The muscles are lightly brined, formed by hand into a teardrop shape, trussed , and lightly smoked over natural hardwood. Although water is picked up in the brining process, it later evaporates during the cooking process. As a result, these hams are simply ham with no water added.
This is a lower sodium ham with a light rosemary flavor perfect for slicing thinly. It is all natural pork raised on small family farms.
