The difference between Ham and Bacon

What is the difference between Ham and Bacon?

The difference between Ham and Bacon starts right at the beginning of the process.  Ham can be cut from the hind leg of a pig or from other parts of the carcass, so it’s a slightly less specific term.  Bacon is pork meat cut from parts of the pig other than the legs, such as the back, loin, collar or the belly.

Other differences are that Bacon is sold raw and must be cooked before being eaten.  Ham is sold pre-cooked and therefore can be eaten straight away.

Finally, how we eat the product highlights the difference between Ham and Bacon.  Ham is usually served cold whereas bacon is eaten hot.  However, both can be added to recipes to make really tasty dishes.
