Black Berkshire Ham | Chump
Black Berkshire is an old English heritage breed and is known for its sweet flavour. The weight range is 3.5 - 4.5 kg.
The Black Berkshire is bred free-range and comes from Byron Bay NSW.
The legs are marinated in a traditional family recipe of brine for 48-52 hours and turned regularly. The legs are then removed from the brine and left to hang for 6 hours. They are then naturally wood smoked for 12 hours, using natural Australian timbers such as iron bark and black butt.
The Chump end of the ham, is known to have more meat and less bone.
If you would like to glaze the ham, instructions can be found on our Ham Glaze page.
We recommend serving your ham with Piccalilli on the side.
