Created in the small village of Alderton by Colonel Dickinson, late of the Royal Ulster Rifles, his recipe for 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.
Whole hams on the bone weigh between 5kg – 7kg. Serving a minimum of approx 70-75 generous slices
Whole boneless hams weigh at least 5kg – Serving approx 65-70 generous slices
Half boneless hams weigh at least 2.60kg – Serving approx 30-35 generous slices
Mini boneless hams weight at least 1.40kg – Serving approx 10-15 generous slices

Ready to eat
To reheat the ham without drying it out, the best way to do this is to place the ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Add water to the bottom of the pan and cover the whole thing tightly with foil.
Bake at 160°for 15-20 minutes per 500g of ham, until a meat thermometer registers 72°
