A dry-cured, English ham that is smoked over oak sawdust. Generally it is lightly smoked but it can be found smoked a little more heavily. It must be cured within 2 miles of York to be considered a York ham. The ham is coarse and fairly salty, but has a mild flavor. It can be eaten raw but is often boiled in the same manner as a country ham.
