If smoked hams had levels of greatness then the Snake River Farms Kurobuta Ham would most definitely go to 11.
Considered the Rolls Royce of smoked hams and the star of my Double Smoked Kurobuta Ham with Peach and Pomegranate Glaze recipe, this all natural, hormone free Berkshire pork ham puts mass market spiral hams to shame with a depth of flavor and richness makes for it the surefire star of your Thanksgiving spread.
Snake River Farms Kurobuta hams are produced using traditional curing methods and are carefully smoked over real hardwood for a sweet, flavorful ham with a savory essence of smoke. 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.
