    What in the heck is speck? Like bacon?

    Speck is a cured and smoked ham: a little salt (not above 5%), pepper, juniper, rosemary, laurel, a little smoke, and a lot of fresh air for about 22 weeks.

    In Greenpoint, Brookly at the intersection of Greenpoint & Manhattan Aves there are at least two specialty Polish butchers that sell a very decent spec. Plus a slew of other smoked & cured pork products, not to mention the sausages, wursts and 12 different types of polish sausage.
