gammon definition and meaning

What is "gammon"?

Gammon is a type of cured ham taken from the hind leg of a pig, similar to ham but typically sold raw and uncooked. It is made by dry-curing or brining the hind leg with salt and sometimes other flavorings, such as sugar, herbs, or spices. After curing, gammon can be smoked or left unsmoked, depending on the desired flavor profile. It is often boiled or roasted before serving and is prized for its rich, savory taste and tender texture.
