HAM

Baked Ham

The rainbow of iridescent color seen on slices of ham is caused by light refraction on the fat film on the ham slice. It does not indicate the ham is old, or spoiled. (Although spoiled ham can show this same iridescence).

Mainz ham is a German ham that is brined, soaked in brandy or wine lees (or a mixture of both) and then smoked for a long period.
