Honey and Truffle Golden Glazed Ham – Whole Ham (£120) or Half Ham (£72)

Each ham comes with a FREE commemorative ham storage bag.

The on-site master butchery team butcher the finest RSPCA assured British pork to DukesHill’s exacting standards. The company’s traditional Wiltshire Cure is then deployed – allowing the meat to spend almost a week maturing in the company’s own-recipe brine.

Unlike other curing processes, the expert team adds a touch of unrefined brown sugar to its brine recipe to add a subtle sweetness and balance alongside the salt levels, giving a mild, subtly sweet and delicious flavour. The ham is air dried for a further week to mature and remove excess moisture.

The next step is to steam cook the hams for 12 hours, allowing the fat to render and soften to provide a buttery texture. Once cooked the ham is inspected, hand-skinned and trimmed by DukesHill’s expert quality manager who has over 15 years of experience curing and preparing the finest hams.

A diamond cut pattern is delicately hand carved across the top of each ham, before coating it in a delectable mixed honey & truffle glaze. The hams are then finished off in a glazing oven and finally coated with a very special regal touch – with edible gold fine flakes for a celebratory finish. The resulting ham has a lovely mild flavour and a moist texture with a subtle sweet honey taste and hint of truffle.
