The dry-cured ham is a delicatessen’s product obtained through the processing of the entire thigh of the animal. Its processing provides the salting and the aging of the thighs in cells where temperature and humidity are checked. Its form is almost the one of a pork fresh thigh, either bones-in or boneless and could be cover by a layer of pork fat (lard flavoured with mountains herbs) added during the processing.

- The ham called “SAINT-MARCEL” has a minimum aging of 18 and/or 24 months.
- The ham called “PETIT MARCEL” has a minimum aging of 14 months.
