Our air-dried ham is made from only pork leg and salt. We use only our own Gloucestershire Old Spot pork. The meat is cured in salt and then hung in our ageing room for 3 – 6 months. During this time the meat loses moisture and the flavour develops and intensifies. When the ham is ready it is sliced and vacuum packed ready for you to eat.
This product is shelf stable, meaning there’s no refrigeration required and it has up to 3 months shelf life. Many customers and shops do still to prefer to keep it refrigerated which of course will do it no harm at all! When you are ready to eat it we recommend allow it to come up to room temperature first to maximise the taste. One the pack is opened you should refrigerate it and keep it in an air tight container.
Our ham is very like procscuitto or parma ham. It makes a great addition to a charcuterie board or can be wrapped around chicken or fish that is going to be baked in the oven.
