Old Prague Ham-02czech.JPG

Pražská Sunka (Prague ham) is one of the traditional Czech cooked hams. Generally, ham is a cut of meat from the thigh of the hind leg of certain animals, especially pig. Nearly all hams sold today are fully cooked or cured. Pražská Sunka is an entire pork leg, brine cooked, fully cooked, glazed, smoked or boiled. The ham was produced by butcher Antonín Chmel and has been a favorite since 19th century, when it became famous in Prague, Dresden, and other European countries. It is traditionally served as a cold appetizer with mustard, horseradish cream, arugula and bread. In some restaurants from Prague it may also be eaten hot, garnished with mashed potatoes and gravy.
