lachsschinken: A kind of cured, salted, smoked ham originally from Bavaria. The name derives from the German lachs  + schinken = ‘salmon ham’, from the bright pink colour of the meat. I found the word from today’s Word watch in The Times and what impressed me was the consonant cluster ‘chssch’ in the middle.
