"The effect of a nut-heavy diet on ham’s fat is magical. It softens it, lowering its melting point to near body temperature so that when you bite into a piece it practically melts on your tongue. This is an exceptional eating experience."
— Zingerman's Mail Order
"We love it!"
— Paul Kahan, James Beard Award Winning Chef/Owner of Blackbird, Avec and Publican in Chicago
