Newsom’s aged Kentucky country ham is “ambient cured,” which means outdoor air of varying temperatures passes over each ham (as opposed to the faster, more conventional indoor curing process).

In other words, the curing time all depends on the weather.

When it’s ready, each ham gets a numbered certificate of authenticity.
