Default difference between Pork & Ham ?

+ Ive been doing my own cooking for many years, but, it
just occurred to me last night... Pork has a white color...
Ham has a red color - but, both are from pigs. How does
this work ?

True, turkeys contain both white and dark meat... but,
every beef product Ive ever seen was red meat.

Can anybody explain the difference between white pork
and red ?

thanks

Good link.

I like to use cottage rolls (cottage hams) for my dutch pea soup when I
can't find a nice ham hock. I've never brined my own but I usuualy get
oversized rolls so I have leftovers for breakfast.

All ham is pork, but not all pork is ham. This concludes the most
useless post I have put up all day.

From Wikipedia:

"Technically, ham is the thigh and rump of any animal that is
slaughtered for meat, but the term is usually restricted to a cut of
pork, the haunch of a pig or boar."

But those are made from breast meat, not turkey hams.
