Speck’s secret can be enclosed in one simple phrase: “Little salt, little smoke, and plenty of fresh mountain air.” Speck is a type of cured, lightly smoked ham. It’s typically made in South Tyrol, a province in northeast Italy known for its snow-capped Dolomite mountains and strong German-Austrian influence. The pork leg is carefully rubbed with a spice mix, usually including salt, pepper, juniper berries, and bay leaves. Every producer’s spice mix recipe varies slightly.
