What sets it apart and gives the ham its distinctive black rind is a fortnight spent wallowing in a special marinade of molasses, juniper and spices. The hams are left to mature for three months during which time they develop their distinctive salty sweet flavour. This ham will appeal to those looking for something special. It has the drier texture of a dry cured ham but also a subtle sweetness.
These hams freeze well for up to 3 months.
Leave hams in their vacuum packaging until you are ready to use them To make carving easier Dukeshill remove the blackened skin before sending your ham.
