Being sausage, inertia leads us to store the ham in the fridge, along with mortadella. But it is a mistake since the cold alters its aroma and flavor.
The ham, despite being similar to cold meat, when refrigerated loses its original flavor, so avoid putting it in the fridge.
The best way to preserve all the flavor and texture of the ham is to always keep it at room temperature.
If you have sliced it and leftover, you can store it in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap so that it is almost vacuum-packed.
