Black Forest ham is a holiday ham alternative that comes from Germany. Smoked over fir and pine, salt-cured and air-dried, this ham has a dark color skin obtained through a coating of beef blood. Black Forest ham can be prepared similar to other hams. Crock-pot preparation thoroughly heats and tenderizes the already-cooked ham for a main course dish.
