Made without any preservatives or artificial additives, this cured ham is a great way to add a lot of flavor to your cooking. Super versatile, it goes from a charcuterie board to the oven or grill with ease. Keep it on hand all summer for easy recipes like these. But consider yourself warned: Jambon de Bayonne is addictive.

1. Caprese Salad Kebabs

Pierce jambon with a skewer and alternate with marinated cherry tomatoes, bocconcini, basil; or try melon balls and mozzarella.

2. Wrap Ham Around Fish or Shellfish

Jambon is a wrap star, and pairs well with seafood. Any firm, flaky fish will work, like cod, salmon, halibut, arctic char, or seabass. It also works well with shrimp and scallops.

3. Wrap Jambon Around Grissini

Who needs crackers when you have elegant breadsticks? Wrap jambon around the end, and leave enough to hold at the bottom. This will also work with thinly sliced ficelle or  cheesestraws.

4. Tartines with Cheese and Greens

If you are using crackers, flatbreads, or sliced baguette, layer with a favorite cheese, a sweet spread, and peppery greens for contrast.
