Our Mondo Black Hog Berkshire Free Range Leg of pork has been cured and smoked using Organic Lake Salt, Filtered Water and Spices to produce a ham that is free of artificial nitrates and preservatives.
Be aware the meat will not be a bright pink. Being free of artificial nitrates the meat will present as a pale pink which will change to natural grey and browns once exposed to the air. This ham will also have more of a Pork flavour rather than a Ham flavour. If you are unsure if this is the right ham for you, please come into our shop and try a slice. Ask any of our friendly staff for assistance.
