Luxury Christmas Ham from DukesHill

DukesHill was founded nearly forty years ago, with a vision of producing the very best hams, cured the “old-fashioned” way, and a true focus on flavour and texture. This commitment to quality led to DukesHill being selected by some of the top London Food Halls including Selfridges, Harrods, and Fortnum & Mason to produce their hams. Today the company produces and supplies an array of top-quality cured and fresh meats, smoked fish, cheeses, puddings, hampers and many more delicious products, by maintaining its traditional approach to crafting fine foods. working in partnership with British farmers and championing small artisan producers.

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without one of DukesHill’s finest hams – this limited-edition ham has been created exclusively for the festive season. Piglets are weaned on RSPCA Assured farms with plenty of space to exercise and access to feed and water to thrive naturally and healthily. DukesHill’s on-site master butchers prepare the finest British pork legs to exacting DukesHill standards, removing the bone before curing using the traditional Wiltshire Cure. The hams spend almost a week immersed in DukesHill’s own-recipe brine, to which they add a touch of unrefined brown sugar to give a subtle sweetness. They are then air dried for a further week to mature and remove excess moisture. The lengthy curing process is what makes for the most exceptional taste and exquisite, moist texture. The final steps are to generously stuff each of them by hand with sage & onion stuffing and steam cook for 12 hours, allowing the fat to render and soften, providing a glorious buttery textured finish. The hams are all painstakingly inspected, hand-skinned and trimmed. A diamond cut pattern is delicately hand-carved across the top of the ham before being coated in a mixed honey & wholegrain mustard glaze.
