Kurobuta Berkshire Ham
There's something almost magical about Snake River Farms Kurobuta hams. Produced using time honored curing methods and carefully smoked over real hardwood, our gourmet hams are sweet, tender, rich in flavor, and have the perfect essence of smoke. Our Berkshire hams consistently receive top scores in artisan ham comparisons and are frequently featured by celebrity chefs and culinary experts during the holidays. Available in a whole ham (14-18lbs) or small half ham (6-8lbs) or large half ham (8-10lbs).
Kurobuta is the Japanese term for “black hog” and refers to animals of the Berkshire variety, a heritage breed. Kurobuta pork is highly marbled with a beautiful dark color, firm texture, and naturally delicious flavor. The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries mandates that pork designated as “Kurobuta” must consist of 100% Berkshire animals. Snake River Farms gourmet hams strictly adhere to this requirement. Our animals are treated humanely and are raised on small family farms without hormones using a natural slow feed process.

“If there were a ham beauty pageant, the lightly smoked bone-in ham from Snake River Farms, with its gorgeous marbling of deep-red and flush-pink meat, would take first prize hands down.” -- From TheNibble.com, “Best Hams: For the Holiday or any Day”

How To Prepare The Perfect Ham
Our hams are fully cooked, however, completely heating them brings out their full flavor and creates a striking presentation. Read More
A big hit
The Ham, I received had just the right mix of smoked flavor and was significantly less salty that hams I have found at our local markets and discount stores. I found the ham tender and full of tasty ham flavor. I thought a whole ham would be a bit much for my dinner party but it was such a hit, folks were looking for second and third servings and were mourning the passing when it was all gone.

The ham was tender and moist. I cooked it while still partially frozen, which helps keep it moist. The flavor was good; not too salty, with recognizable notes of clove. I will not order this again because I was looking for a ham with distinct smokey dimensions to the flavor. This product had almost no smokiness to it at all. If you don't want that flavor profile, and are simply looking for great texture with a mild salt/ sweet taste, then get this ham. Customer service was excellent.

This was a pretty tasty ham. Overly sweet brining, in my opinion, but a good porky flavor. I enjoyed it and would consider another one for a holiday event with other Americans, but as far as global pork goes, this was still just a 5/10. No shame in that, our laws here are what they are, but I was really hoping for more from this.
