Made by the fantastic Country Victualler, and originally created in the small village of Alderton by Colonel Dickinson, late of the Royal Ulster Rifles, this deliciously moist and succulently sweet ham is steamed and then baked with a traditional Marmalade glaze.
Alderton Ham is made using the highest quality pork, sourced from a local farm within 6 miles. The chosen farm specialises in breeding and rearing traditional pigs outdoors, where they have plenty of space in which to roam, root and wallow.
All the pork is from gilts and has a good layer of fat without it being excessive, so that the meat is always flavoursome. This results in ham which is succulent and full of flavour just like it used to be in the days of old.
